CFHS packs in pink

pack it in pink

Almost everyone  has known or experienced a battle of cancer with someone. Whether it’s a grandparent, father, mother, sibling, teacher, anyone; this disease has written itself into our lives.

In the United States this year over 1,529,560 people will have been diagnosed with some form of cancer, and Iowa alone will have accounted for 17, 260 of those diagnoses.

So to encourage hope and triumph over this disease, our high school will be sponsoring “Packed in Pink” nights. Each sports team through this year will be showing off its support by wearing pink on a special game night.

On Oct. 5 women’s swimming and volleyball teams will host “Packed in Pink” nights, and if your looking for something pink, activity director secretary Jane Carter in the front office has T-shirts available for $10.

There are also plans for a “Packed in Pink” day during the year. The money will be given to the Cedar Valley Hospice center.

We at the Tiger Hi-Line feel this cause is one that should be highly regarded. This disease affects so many of us, and we want to inspire hope through our community by showing how much we care as Tigers. So pack it in pink!
