My Student Ambassadors with the assistance of Ms. Sawyer and our coaches designate a home game for each sport (pink out game). During these games they promote Cancer awareness and look for donations that will support a local cancer support network. Rays of Hope has been our designated benefactor the last couple years with athletics donating proceeds to them.
Our student ambassadors sell merchandise, gather donations at these home events. In addition they help organize a dress down day where faculty donate to their cause.
Our teams coordinate wearing Pink to show support! Usually the culminating event is our Home Football game where cotton candy and other activities are sold/done promoting the efforts to raise money for Cancer.
I’m sure our ambassadors do much more than this paragraph as they really value giving back to the community and support this cause. It’s near and dear to me as both my parents passed away from Cancer.
