The WNBA is always doing something special no matter during the season or offseason, and this month brings in Breast Health Awareness and FIT Month. For Breast Health Awareness, the WNBA is partnering with Bright Pink, a non profit organization focusing on preventing breast and ovarian cancer, so they can “help with the prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young women”, according to the WNBA‘s website. Also, each team will host a BHA game which includes teams wearing BHA Nike uniforms. The league will be making donations to Bright Pink as well.
WNBA Fit Month is presented by Kaiser Permanente, one of the top leading health care providers in America that offer not-for-profit health plans. The WNBA and Kaiser Permanente will host multiple clinics and programs for people of all ages. So these events won’t be just for the youth, it’ll be for the elderly and all other ages too, which helps get everyone involved. There will be all types of physical drills with current and former WNBA players, as well as mental activities to keep people mentally and physically strong.
