Dig Pink Volleyball Game

By McKenzie Goetsch

     On October 14th, the Lady Indians dedicated their game against NCL as the traditional “Dig Pink” game. The volleyball game is used to raise awareness for cancer. The Pawnee County Memorial Hospital set up an information booth to give out useful information on early detection and screenings.  They also painted and decorated pumpkins that were auctioned off to raise money for the Pawnee Hospital Foundation. The Volleyball Team made posters displaying who they are dedicating their game for; people who had passed away, who are survivors, or are who are currently fighting cancer.
     On October 18th, four Sophomores, Kellen, Steven, Hannah, and  Sarah, are going to be on KNTC citing facts about cancer from 10 - 11 am. They will be reminding us to wear sunscreen for good skin care, not to smoke or chew, to reduce your risk for oral cancers and lung cancers.
     The event raised over $800 for cancer awareness and the money will be given to the Pawnee Hospital Foundation.
