On Sunday, July 31, the State College Spikes took on the West Virginia Black Bears and came out victorious. However, this game wasn’t your average baseball game. As in previous years, the Spikes held their annual Paint the Park Pink game in support of the fight against breast cancer.

Holding a silent auction for the players’ pink cheetah jerseys, the game raised $4,525, bringing the lifetime total to more than $51,000. Since its inception in 2007, Mount Nittany Health Foundation has designated the funds to the Mount Nittany Health Breast Care Center to benefit breast cancer care, including the addition of tomosynthesis, also known as 3D mammography. “We are proud to partner with the State College Spikes in this annual event to help advance breast cancer care in our region,” said Melissa Aungst, foundation specialist, Mount Nittany Health Foundation. “Scott Walker and the entire Spikes organization are great partners in helping us to provide the technology for the highest quality care close to home.”

The Mount Nittany Health Breast Care Center offers the means to address breast health concerns by providing a range of diagnostic services. Allison Yingling, MD, and Anna Hood, MD, board-certified radiologists with fellowship training in breast imaging, work closely with patients for breast imaging needs such as 3D mammography, digital mammograms, breast ultrasounds, breast MRI interpretation, needle localizations and biopsies.
