The WBCA began the Pink Zone initiative, formerly known as 'Think Pink' in 2007 to raise breast cancer awareness in women's basketball, on campuses and in communities. In 2007, more than 120 schools unified for this effort and helped made the inaugural year a success. In 2008, over 1,200 teams and organizations participated, reaching over 830,000 fans and raising over $930,000 for breast cancer awareness and research. Washington participated in the initiative the last two years.
