Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, the Cornersville High School hosted a “Pink Out” during the football game against the Richland Raiders October 6.

The event, sponsored by the Marshall County Cancer Foundation, helped kick off fund-raising efforts. All money raised from the sale of Pink Out t-shirts, money raised at the football game and other donations are earmarked to stay in Marshall County to help cancer patients actively going through treatment.

Fans from both teams joined in the halftime show to honor friends and loved ones who have battled any type of cancer. The names of loved ones who fought cancer were acknowledged during the half-time ceremony.

Pink T-shirts sold for $10 to $13, depending on sleeve length, to help raise money.
