The “Oklahoma Play 4Kay” fundraising effort will be held across the state Jan. 1-Feb. 14 to benefit the Kay Yow Cancer Fund, in conjunction with OU women's basketball coach Sherri Coale, the Oklahoma Coaches Association and the Oklahoma FCA.
The Oklahoma Play 4Kay initiative works with high schools and middle schools across the state with a goal of raising $214,000 by Feb. 14.
The North Carolina-based Kay Yow Cancer Fund hopes the Oklahoma initiative will be the first of many statewide efforts to help raise funds for women's cancer research and to raise breast cancer awareness. Kay Yow was the North Carolina State women's basketball coach who won more than 700 games before dying of breast cancer in 2009.
The Oklahoma Play 4Kay effort will feature a competition to determine which schools and conferences can raise the most money at Play 4Kay events.

BETHANY EMPHASIZING NO-HUDDLE
Bethany displayed a fast-paced no-huddle offense during Thursday night's scrimmage against Harrah and Jones.
The up-tempo offense is a style the Bronchos used last season, but they've focused on being even faster this year.
“The tempo is something we're emphasizing a little bit more this year,” coach Reagan Roof said. “We've done it before, but we're going to try to be in a little bit better condition so we can sort of tinker with it throughout the season.”
The no-huddle features predominantly zone-read plays that allow dual-threat quarterback Kyle Duke to use his legs or arm.
CHA HAS OFFENSIVE WEAPONS
Christian Heritage quarterback Colton Lindsey has plenty of weapons to throw to this season.
The Crusaders return four wide receivers and tight end Nathan Sosa, making the offense tough to defend all over the field.
