Pitt Women's Basketball Social Media:
The Pitt women's basketball coaching staff accepted the Cold Water Challenge that has been passed around the country. The women's basketball community buzz for the viral videos was spurred by Niya Butts the head coach at Arizona who decided it would make an entertaining fundraiser for the Kay Yow Foundation.
Women's basketball programs across the country have issued challenges to colleagues, coaches, players and more to get cold water poured on their heads and keep the movement moving forward - so far it is estimated the campaign has reached over 31 million people on Twitter. Suzie McConnell-Serio and her staff were challenged multiple times for the #Chillin4Charity movement and they accepted in emphatic fashion.
Kay Yow was a pioneer in the women's game, compiling more than 700 wins at N.C. State and eight times earning national coach of the year honors. She died of breast cancer in 2009 and her foundation - the Kay Yow Cancer Fund founded in 2007 - looks not only to fund cancer research but also aid coaches to enrich their lives by serving others. McConnell-Serio has a special connection with Coach Yow having played for her as a member of the gold-medal winning team in Barcelona in 1992.
