The Fayette County Memorial Hospital is partnering with Miami Trace and Washington Court House high schools for two “pink-out” games in October.
Tonight, Washington C.H. students are invited to pink-out the stands for the football game against Clinton Massie. Miami Trace students should plan to pink-out the stands on the Oct. 16 game against Wilmington.
The pink-out night will help to raise awareness for breast cancer awareness, and while supplies last, those who come to the game wearing pink will be given a free pink megaphone so they can loudly support their team and breast cancer awareness throughout the rest of the season.
“FCMH and Tanger Outlets are pleased to bring PINK to the football games to increase breast cancer awareness and education,” said FCMH Director of Marketing and Foundation Chelsie Hornsby. “This is going to be raising funds for survivors of breast cancer right here in Fayette County.”
FCMH and the Fayette County Health Department are partnering to administer flu shots at both pink-out nights for $25 each. Tanger Powerful Pink Cards will also be available for a $5 donation. The Tanger Power Pink Cards are a multi-use card for unlimited savings of 25 percent off a single item at participating stores at the Tanger Outlets in Jeffersonville throughout the month of October.
The Women’s Wellness Center at FCMH and the Breast Cancer Research Foundation are the recipients of the funds from the donations collected for the Powerful Pink Cards.
