 Kaley Moser, senior co-captain of the Williams basketball team, has organized a Play4Kay game to benefit breast cancer research and treatment at 6 p.m. Friday at Williams High School; Williams will play Eastern Guilford High School.

 “My inspiration for this game comes from Kay Yow and my Aunt Jami Moser Hinson. I grew up going to Kay Yow’s basketball camps and looking up to Coach Yow’s passion about basketball and about life. She had a strong faith and a positive outlook on life, which I strive to have as well,” Moser said. “My Aunt Jami passed away from breast cancer just a little over three years ago. Just as Kay Yow, my aunt had a wonderful spirit, and I want their legacies to be remembered. Also, chances are, we all know someone affected by breast cancer. There is a lot to be done to help prevent, treat and cure breast cancer, so I want to do everything I can.”

 At the game, fans can purchase a T-shirt for $10, give a donation, or participate in a silent auction that features signed basketballs — one signed by the UNC women’s basketball team and three others signed by either the UNC, Elon, or NCSU womens’ head basketball coaches. All of the money raised will be donated to The Kay Yow Cancer Fund and The Pink Ribbon Fund of the Alamance Regional Medical Center Foundation. “I want to extend an invitation to the community for this event, especially all breast cancer survivors,” Moser said.
