The Menlo College athletic department raised nearly $1,200 for the Susan G. Komen Foundation from its annual "Think Pink Day," recently. The baseball, men's basketball and women's basketball each participated in the event.

Efforts surrounding the three events included 50-50 raffles, donations for pink ribbons displayed on gym walls, and the gate revenu.
"Our 'Think Pink Day' further illustrates our department goal to be servant leaders and make an impact in the local community both on and off the field of play," Menlo College Athletic Director Keith Spataro said. "Seeing our teams and department come together for this cause once again shows our commitment to our department goals and our ability to rally around a great cause."
The Menlo College Athletic Department consists of 15 teams competing in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA). Over 50 percent of all students on campus participate in athletics.
