Basketball Game to Promote ‘NO MORE’ Campaign at UW
The University of Wyoming Department of Athletics is designating its Saturday, Feb. 25 men’s basketball game versus New Mexico as a “NO MORE” game to raise awareness for the national campaign “NO MORE, Together We Can End Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault.”
The Arena-Auditorium will open at 3 p.m. Feb. 25. Other UW campus groups, including the Stop Violence office and Voices of Courage organization, are partnering on the event and will have representatives at information tables on the concourse of the Arena-Auditorium to answer questions and provide additional information to fans in attendance. The Wyoming-New Mexico game will tip off at 4 p.m.
As part of the day’s events, Wyoming coaches, players and staff encourage fans to join them in saying “NO MORE” to domestic violence and sexual assault. Coaches and staff members will wear lapel pins and teal-colored ties showing their support for the “NO MORE” campaign. Players from both teams will wear special shooting shirts to help raise awareness for the campaign.
Nationally recognized speaker Brenda Tracy, who has shared her story of being a rape survivor with many university athletics departments across the country, including UW, will share a short video message that will play on the Arena-Auditorium video boards during the game.
The “NO MORE” game is one of several new initiatives being introduced on the UW campus to continue to strengthen efforts to prevent sexual assault.
