Dig Pink!  The Lady Bobcats will be supporting this nationwide movement to provide meaningful experiences for athletes while inspiring and empowering them to come together in support of the stage IV breast cancer community. Each year, hundreds of teams across the country participate in Dig Pink! 

The Lady Bobcats will be promoting cancer awareness at a huge district volleyball game, going up against the Carlise Indians on Tuesday, October 9, 2018. 

So, whenever I get the opportunity to bring awareness and help raise money for breast cancer research, I’m going to go all out!” Head volleyball Coach Connor Nichols said“And being able to share this with my volleyball girls and seeing how excited and just invested they are, it’s a great feeling.” 

At the game there will be donation booths that will support Dig Pink! A pink rain boot craft, a silent auction, and yummy pink treats will be placed around tables in the commons area to raise money. All funds will go to support Dig Pink! 

“In 2014 my aunt was diagnosed with breast cancer. Seeing her go through chemo and radiation was probably one of the hardest things to watch, not just as a family member, but for anyone going through it,” said Coach Nichols. “Watching her fight and then being able to be with her when she rang the bell signaling that she had breast cancer was inspiring.  

Many families in our community have been impacted by breast cancer. 

Senior Shyenna Letter said, “I’m extremely glad we are doing this, especially since many people in my family have struggled from this cancer and lost. I just feel like we are supporting them and many others.” 

This is a big project to the Gary Volleyball team. They have been working on dozens of posters as well as other decorations, which will be placed around the gym and commons area.  

“I think that it is a great thing that we decided to come together and do this year,” senior Madie Davis said. “I like seeing our community and our school come together and to support these cancer fighters.”
