In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month (October), the girls volleyball team is holding a “Dig Pink” game this Friday, September 27. They will host a“pink-out” game against Bethlehem Catholic High School.  The match will be held in the high school gymnasium and it starts at 7:00 p.m. 

There will be tricky trays, baskets, and t-shirt sales held at tables inside of the gym. All of the money received from the fundraisers will be donated to “Breast Friends”, an organization that helps raise money for breast cancer research and for families of those who have lost loved ones to breast cancer. Each player has created a poster to fill the gym and spread awareness towards the cause. 

This Friday, there will be a district-wide dress down, students can wear a pink shirt for $1 or wear their “Dig Pink” shirt for free. Money from the dress down will also be donated to “Breast Friends”. 

Head coach Lydia Redman has also collected names from all of the players in order to honor survivors who are currently battling breast cancer, as well as victims who sadly lost their battle.

“I am happy to be a part of this,” said Redman. She expects a big turn out for a good game and a good cause. “I want it to be big, pink, and loud” Redman said. 

Come out and show support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and the girls volleyball team in their fight against BECAHI. Wear pink, buy some pink pastries, and snacks at the concessions, and get loud.
