Niles high school celebrates pink night
NILES, Mich.-- Niles high school celebrated the end of their Think Pink week at the annual Pink Out football game.
Friday night did not only encompass football, or Niles' senior night, but also their annual Pink Out game.
The football team was wearing their special pink jersey's, the cheerleaders had pink bows and pom poms, and the crowd donned their pink as well to share their support during October, Breast Cancer Awareness month.
At the last football game for the season against Central Portage, the community came together to sell goods and pink merchandise with all of the proceeds going to local cancer fighting charities such as Hope Grows and the Brian Parker Memorial Foundation.
But the support did not only happen tonight--Niles high school has participated in support activities all week such as bake sales, class contests, and selling $1 wristbands to add to their donation.
The students and staff also took 40 minutes, an entire period out of their day, to walk for the breast cancer cause.
Niles high school is truly "thinking pink" and doing what they can to spread breast cancer awareness.
