The Cedar Springs Red Hawks Varsity football team will host a “pink” game to raise money to fight breast cancer on Friday, September 28, and they are asking for the community’s help to support the cause.
Senior Football Captain Baylee Sterling, and his mom, Wendy Guillard, are organizing the event, and said that proceeds generated from the game will go toward the Susan G. Komen foundation.
Both the football players and cheerleaders will wear pink jerseys during the game against Forest Hills Eastern, and they looking for families of survivors or those who have lost someone to breast cancer to sponsor the jerseys for $40. Victims’ names will go on the back of the jersey, and the families will be presented the jersey at the end of the game. Anyone interested in donating toward or sponsoring a jersey should contact the Cedar Springs High School Athletic Office at 696-9080 or mail it to 204 E. Muskegon, Cedar Springs, MI 49319. Orders are needed by September 10.
Other ways to donate include buying a raffle ticket or t-shirt. Fans will have the chance to win some great prizes from area businesses in a raffle they are holding during the game. And, starting this week, fans can purchase a t-shirt for $10 at all JV and Varsity home games.
This will be the first “pink” event for the Red Hawks. Please show your support!
