The T. C. Williams girls’ basketball team honored breast cancer survivors at the third annual Pink Zone event on Tuesday, Feb. 5. Before the game, Coach Kesha Walton presented survivors Lieutenant Monique Rea, Sergeant Lynn Oliver and Deputy Valarie Wright of the Alexandria Sheriff’s Office, and her own mother Eva Walton with pink carnations and courtside seats to see the Titans take on Lake Braddock. Michelle Daichman of the American Cancer Society also gave each woman a “survivor” sash.

The Alexandria Fire Department showed its support of breast cancer awareness by selling pink “Fired up for the Cause” t-shirts which benefit the Alexandria Breast Cancer Walk Fund for Early Detection and Education at Inova Alexandria Hospital. The Alexandria Sheriff’s Association purchased shirts for members of the girls’ basketball team who wore them during warm-ups. Pink Zone organizers announced that Alexandria will host the Relay for Life on May 18 in Del Ray to support the American Cancer Society.
