In support of February’s designation as American Heart Month, Penn College observed a “Red Out” during its women’s and men’s basketball games against Lancaster Bible College on Tuesday. Fans were encouraged to wear red clothing and fill the Bardo Gymnasium stands, and a number of activities helped call attention to cardiac wellness. The evening featured free T-shirts and foam Wildcat paws, waterproof Bluetooth headphones for the winner of the “Wearing the Most Red” award and a fitness watch for the “Knockout Game” victor. Raffle tickets were sold to faculty/staff for a free Fitness Center membership, with proceeds donated to the American Heart Association.
