Event description
Free breast cancer screenings will be offered by Ascension St. Vincent on Saturday, March 7, 2020 from 3:00 PM - 8:00 PM EDT.

About this Event

One of the signature events surrounding the Big Ten Women’s Basketball Tournament each year is the “Big Ten Thinks Pink” initiative, which honors breast cancer survivors and celebrates breast cancer awareness through the Pink Ribbon Connection, an organization that provides free supplies and services for breast cancer patients in Indiana. This year, the Big Ten Conference will take this initiative another step further by partnering with Ascension St. Vincent to offer free mammograms on Saturday, March 7, during Semifinal Saturday of the Big Ten Women’s Basketball Tournament at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. The Big Ten is firmly dedicated to supporting services like free mammograms and working with the Indianapolis community to promote a healthy lifestyle, including preventative screenings for numerous types of cancers.

In order to request an appointment, please review the below screening guidelines to ensure you are eligible. If you are eligible, please select a time that works best for you and complete the contact form. Once the form is completed, a contact with St. Vincent will reach out to you to gather further information and provide more details.

Each participant will receive a complimentary ticket to the Big Ten Women's Basketball Tournament on Saturday, March 7th. Your ticket will be placed at Bankers Life Fieldhouse Will Call under your name and can be picked up on Saturday prior to the games. Additional tickets can also be purchased at that time of pickup if you have anyone attending the game with you.
