Four Schools. Two Rivalries. One Cause. Pink and White Game 2017
This Friday, April 28th at 7:30 at St.X will mark the 10th Annual Pink and White Football Game played between Assumption and Sacred Heart.
Since, its inception, the Pink and White Game has raised over 195,000 dollars in support of the Norton Cancer Institute Breast Health Program. Last year’s event alone raised over 25,000 dollars.
Seniors from both Assumption and Sacred Heart have been practicing diligently to claim a win and well-deserved bragging rights. Also competing are seniors from St.X and Trinity, with help from AHS and SHA dancers, who will do a choreographed dance at halftime for the title of “Best Dance Team.”
Assumption and Saint Xavier will team up to form #TeamPink while Sacred Heart and Trinity will make up #TeamWhite
If you’ve never heard of this event, here’s what you should expect.
While the game will fill Br. Thomas More Stadium to full capacity, and is all fun, the true meaning for this game is something special. This game started as a pipeline dream for an Assumption student years ago, and now that dream has benefited the lives of many others. It’s hard to come by someone who’s life has not been touched in some way by cancer. Whether it’s a parent, a sibling, an aunt, a grandparent, cancer has impacted the lives of millions of people.
With this year being the 10th Anniversary, I hope to see the biggest donation yet.
Oh, and of course, Go Rockets, Go Tigers, and Go TEAM PINK!
