Tonight was Troy's homecoming game. Each game, the high school chooses a theme which which sets the tone for the student section.
Can you guess? In honor of October being Breast Cancer Awareness, they choose to do a "pinkout." Everyone was to wear pink. Last night, my house was the staging area for 5 girls to make pink t-shirts. My daughter and I dyed the shirts, then they came and availed themselves of my fabrics and Wonder-under to make the lettering which they then embellished. Their work looked pretty professional.
In addition, the National Honor Society sold pink ribbons to raise money which will be given to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.....
It really was a sea of pink.....even the guys wore pink. And the Green guy? Well, that's George and he even put pink ear muffs and accouterments on his green skin suit.
Unfortunately, we lost the game (Troy was 6 wins to 1 loss until now). Trotwood was just bigger and played harder. However, I think they're all winners for making this public statement and working to try to find a cure or to eradicate breast cancer. I just hope that these girls take it to heart and do their self-breast exams and work hard to stay healthy.
