Coleman Hosting Dig Pink Game Against Ashley
COLEMAN – The month of October is known as Breast Cancer Awareness month. During that time, many schools and teams honor those who have lost their battle with and who have survived breast cancer, with charity pink out games.
These teams will wear pink jerseys, sell t-shirts, among other fundraising efforts, to bring awareness to the hardships of the disease.
Coleman’s volleyball team is one of those teams who have decided to do a Dig Pink game.
“A number of them have relatives who have survived breast cancer and they wanted to honor those relatives so on tomorrow night, we’re going to be announcing the names of all the survivors of the kids who have relatives who had breast cancer and survived it,” said Coleman’s head coach, Joanna Shumaker. “The girls bought their own uniforms, and they’re just trying to bring awareness to it so everyone’s going to be wearing pink tomorrow night and it’s going to be really fun night.”
The Comets (4-16-3) host Ashley on Tuesday, with JV starting at 5:30 p.m. and varsity starting at 7 p.m. All the proceeds go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
