Pink Out at OSU

Welcome to Campus Connection, where new campus hot-spots and underappreciated organizations get their time in the spotlight.

For over one hundred years, fans have donned the signature scarlet-and-gray while walking into the Horseshoe.

One organization will try to change the fanbase’s attire for a day. Striving to bring awareness to those battling breast cancer, Pink-Out Ohio State has declared the upcoming game against the Minnesota Gophers as a pink-out.

Pink Out Ohio State was founded in 2007 and has become increasingly prevalent on campus, selling shirts all across campus to promote the event. The shirts, which are sold at $10, have been available for sale since the end of September.

Breast cancer affects about 12.4% of American women and remains as one of the leading causes of death in the United States. Pink Out Ohio State was founded in conjunction with the Spielman family, which remains as a major influence to the organization. All proceeds and funds raised by the club go to the Stefanie Spielman Fund at the James Cancer Hospital of Ohio State. 

You can follow Pink Out State on Facebook or Twitter. Pink Out Ohio State will be selling additional shirts on Saturday before the game on the Oval.
