AHS and SCHS come together for a cure



Atascocita High School and Summer Creek High School raised over $11,000 for the American Cancer Society.


Both high schools combined their efforts to raise awareness during Breast Cancer Awareness Month with PINK OUT activities. This included t-shirt sales, pep rallies and a friendly fundraising competition. To promote breast cancer awareness month and raise funds for the American Cancer Society the schools sold two versions of their PINK OUT shirts.


The principal of the school to raise the most money, leading up to the big October 14 varsity football game, would get the opportunity to throw a pie in the face of the principal who raised the least amount of money. The principal of the losing school would get pied in the face on the big screen during halftime at the game.


Before the big game the schools honored local breast cancer survivors on the football field. Each breast cancer survivor received a pink balloon and was escorted by dance team member or football player from either school. The ceremony ended in a pink balloon release honoring people who have lost their battle to breast cancer and the people still fighting.


During halftime it was announced that Summer Creek High School raised more funds than Atascocita High School during their PINK OUT competition. Summer Creek High School principal Nolan Correa got the opportunity to pie Atascocita High School principal, Bill Daniels in the face. The principals were very supportive of the cause and agreed to both take a pie in the face for Breast Cancer Awareness.


The schools came together for a great cause and filled the stands in their PINK OUT attire at the game. There were tons of pink socks, pink bows, pink t-shirts and even pink wigs. All fundraising through PINK OUT t-shirt sales at both schools and the PINK OUT flags sold at Atascocita High School will be donated to the American Cancer Society.
