Big Green goes pink Friday for Breast Cancer Awareness

Pink will be the color Friday, Oct. 12, at Guss Schmiedt Field.

The home to the Manteca High Buffaloes will be where they’ll take on visiting Weston Ranch High that day in the Valley Oak League affair recognizing Breast Cancer Awareness.

This is the second-ever Pink Out football game at MHS. The goal is to raise $2,000 for the American Cancer Society.

The varsity game kicks off at 7 p.m.

Players, students, cheerleaders, and fans are scheduled to wear pink for the game.

During that time, students will be on hand to collect donations for the American Cancer Society while providing information on breast cancer awareness.

A special “In Honor of” and “In Memory of” wall will be setup for those in attendance.

Breast cancer survivors and fighters will be recognized during a special halftime ceremony.

Link Crew members will also be selling pink “Buffs Tackle Cancer” t-shirts for $10, benefiting the cause.

According to the American Cancer Society, one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer, which is the most commonly diagnosed form of cancer in women and the second leading cause of cancer death among women.

The American Cancer Society’s mission is educating for early detection and diagnosis.

Information will be provided at the game to further help those understand testing, diagnosis, treatment options and living as a breast cancer survivor.

For information on the game can be obtained by calling MHS at 209.858.7340.
