Pink Out on Friday!
Janessa Davis spoke with Alexandria Maynsfield and Wellsboro High School teacher Sherry Mohr about this Friday’s Pink Out Football Game.
The pink out game was inspired by Alexandria’s grandmother, who passed away two years ago from breast cancer. The first pink out event was held last year with the band, cheerleaders, and football players all wearing some form of pink. The Connectors Plus program at the high school is selling many pink items this year, including t-shirts, wristbands and stickers to raise awareness for breast cancer and to support the Susan G. Komen Foundation. (Ms. Mansfield and Ms. Mohr are the directors of the Connectors Plus program.) They are also selling 50/50 tickets for various prizes, including a trip to a lake house.
At Friday’s game, two breast cancer survivors will be honored by presenting the game ball to the official. In return, they will both be given pink-painted footballs to commemorate their fight. Alexandria hopes that this program and the “pink out” football games will continue even after she graduates. Come out to support your team and breast cancer awareness.
We will see you there!
