Panera Bread has sponsored the recent release of North Carolina State University Women's Head Basketball Coach Kay Yow's children's book titled "Coach Yow: I will, Not Just I'll Try." The book aims to teach children life lessons.

PR9.NET December 07, 2007 - DURHAM, N.C. Continuing their longstanding relationship with N.C. State University athletics, Panera Bread has once again teamed up with Kay Yow, head coach of the women's basketball team, as sponsor of her recently released children's book titled "Coach Yow: I Will, Not Just I'll Try." Targeted to youth, ages 6-12, the book aims to teach life lessons based on Coach Yow's coaching career and her inspirational battle with breast cancer.

"We're proud to sponsor the publication of Coach Yow's book," said Casey Bastian, vice president of operations for area Panera Bread locations. "The determination she has shown throughout her career and her battle with breast cancer has been an inspiration to so many."

In addition, 2008 will mark the second year that Panera has sponsored the "Hoops for Hope" game that raises money for breast cancer awareness.

"Panera Bread continues to give back to the Triangle community," said Yow. "I cherish the relationship that we've built together."

Over the next several weeks, Coach Yow will be visiting the following area locations to sign copies of her book:
