Varsity football teams sports their pink socks in support of breast cancer awareness at annual Pink Out game October 5, 2012.

October is known as breast cancer awareness month throughout the U.S. It is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. Many organizations raise money for breast cancer research in hopes to find a cure for a disease that kills thousands of women each year. North supports the cause by hosting the Varsity football Pink Out game once a year.

“It all started with Coach [Dawn] Hahn when her mother passed away from breast cancer,” Assistant Principal Andrew Downs said. “This was her tribute to her mother’s death.”

The Pink Out game is the one football game you can go to and not see black and gold everywhere you look. Players and crowd members enjoy wearing pink clothes and accessories for a change.

“The game is a good way to support a good cause,” Varsity player Mac Sievert said. “It’s more things you can add to your uniform and makes you look cool.”

North lost 12-15 in a close game against Troy, but the money raised from the game will go to various breast cancer foundations and help scientists get that much closer to finding a cure. The Pink Out game continues to bring people together to collect money and raise awareness against breast cancer.

“Anytime you can get the community around a good cause it’s a good thing,” Downs said.
