Gold Out Game for a good cause
At 6 p.m. on Saturday Sept. 22 Cy Springs will be gold’n out the stadium in a football game against Cy Lakes at home to raise awareness for pediatric cancer.
Gold Out shirts are being sold at both Cy Springs and Cy Lakes to raise money for pediatric cancer research. The shirts are navy with gold writing and Cy Lakes’ shirts are gray with gold writing. Shirts are $10 with $7 going to pediatric cancer research.
During the game, donations will be taken that will benefit pediatric cancer research. Donation totals will be announced on the Cy Springs athletic webpage.
“We combined with the athletic department to sell Gold Out shirts to raise money and awareness for pediatric cancer”, said junior Jazmine Rainey. “ Kids can’t fight cancer alone. It’s time for us to do something rather than waiting on someone else to make a difference.”
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month. Every day 42 families receive the news that their child has cancer.
“It’s important to support these children because in order to make a change we need a lot of people backing the cause,” said senior Angelica Hutson.
