Do you want to walk with Scotty McCreery at Hoops4Hope?

I wanted to post this here so everyone could see it.
I have sent an e-mail to Scott Warner asking if there is any way to make a donation in Scotty's name. I also asked if people purchased the tickets and were chosen as a winner but were unable to attend the event would Scotty have the option of picking someone else to walk in their place. I was thinking maybe he could pick a random person out of the audience or something like that. As soon as I hear back from him, I will let everyone know.

Walk 4Kay at Hoops 4 Hope Walk 4Kay is another great way to make a donation to the Kay Yow Cancer Fund. This year, many NC State coaches, administrators, and student-athletes have volunteered to walk on treadmills fueled by your donations during the event.

The treadmill Walk 4Kay is another great way to make a donation to the Kay Yow Cancer Fund. This year, many NC State coaches, administrators, current student-athletes, as well as local celebrities have volunteered to walk in 15 minute increments on treadmills fueled by your donations during the NC State Women's Basketball game vs Wake Forest. The Treadmill Walk 4Kay will start 30 minutes prior to tip-off and continue till the final buzzer. You must have purchased a women's basketball game ticket to enter Reynolds Coliseum. Please contact the ticket office directly at 919-865-1510 or visit to purchase game tickets.


You have the opportunity to walk alongside your favorite celebrity by making a donation to the Kay Yow Cancer Fund! Here is how it works:

1) See the list below of NC State and local celebrities that have volunteered for this event.

2) Who would you like to walk along side of?

3) Use the link below to safely use your credit card to make your donation. Each "ticket" purchased will increase the odds that you are selected. Any fan that makes a donation for their selected celebrity, is entered to win the chance to walk during the game along side their selected celebrity. The more chances purchased the better your odds to win. Each ticket is $1.00. Make sure you write which celebrity you are donating for in the "special handling" section. Only 9 celebrities with the most donations will be selected to walk. Be sure you make a donation if you want to see your favorite celebrity walk.

Example: Fan A and Fan B both want to walk with Coach Bible. Fan A purchases 50 chances @ $1.00 each, while Fan B purchases 100 chances @ $1.00 each. Both fans have been entered to win with Fan B having a greater chance to win. If Coach Bible is one of the top 9 donation getters, he will walk along side the winner.

4) Donations will end on Wednesday, February 8th at 11:59 p.m.

5) Winners will be contacted with a time for their walk. Please contact Scott Warner ( with questions related to Walk 4Kay.

*Note: The software used for this donation is the same as the NC State online ticket office. Please disregard any notifications regarding your game ticket purchase. This donation will not be related to a game ticket purchase in any way. However, you must purchase a women’s basketball game ticket to enter Reynolds Coliseum.
