A local football teams go all pink to raise cancer awareness
As the Potterville Vikings took on Fowler Friday night, they did so in pink, hoping to raise awareness for all types of cancer.
It was a game like any other except Friday night, Potterville's in all pink.
Right down to the socks.
Dominic Curtis, Potterville Football Player: "Were supporting breast cancer awareness and cancer awareness in general."
It was all organized by three senior football players.
Curtis: "We don't have the biggest budget here in Potterville."
That's why the boys came together to raise more than 2 thousand dollars for the cause.
Curtis: "We had to get money out to get the jerseys and the socks and to raise money just for cancer research in general."
The jerseys bear the names of cancer victims and survivors; after the game the boys gave them to the families.
Curtis: "We've had a couple people in the community lost and people close to us and we're trying to support them and show them that they're not forgotten and we're gonna beat this."
But its not just the players in pink.
It's the cheerleaders, the band and the fans as well.
Making for a night Potterville will never forget, celebrating people they'll always remember.
Robert Giffen, Potterville Football Player: "The greatest thing I've ever been a part of."
But after Friday night, it seems the boys may want to change their school colors.
Curtis: "Its pretty awesome actually, we all look good in pink!"
Giffen: "Is weird, it looks good though."
