Money well spent

Kathy Farnes (Readers' Forum, Feb. 2) lodges criticism for the waste of money on pink uniforms and pink tennis shoes. Does she have information about what the pink attire cost? Did BYU actually pay for the duds, or were they donated? Did the American Cancer Society furnish the uniforms as an advertising gimmick?

I suspect bringing attention to any charitable need is a worthwhile endeavor. The few buckaroos it might have cost BYU to support the need for financial and moral support for cancer victims was money well spent. Don't take my word for it. Stop by any hospice, hospital or care center and visit with the cancer victims who are waiting for a medical breakthrough. Ask them if the money for jerseys and shoes was well spent.
