'Pink Out' Planned for Winters Mill, Westminster Football Game Friday Night

Athletes and fans at Friday night's football game at Winters Mill High School will wear pink to recognize Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The Winters Mill High School football stadium is going to be a wall of pink as football players and fans promote breast cancer awareness at Friday night's game against Westminster High School.

According to Kelly Chiavacci, a Winters Mill athletic boosters volunteer and parent of two students, Winters Mill has declared Friday a "pink out" at the stadium in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. They are requesting that all game attendees wear pink.

Chiavacci said that they have been selling pink t-shirts to students, fans and faculty and the proceeds will go to the cancer center at Carroll Hospital Center.

"The [football] team will be wearing pink socks, the field hockey team will be there with pink streaks in their hair, there will be pink balloons, pink beads and bracelets -- there will be lots of fans supporting our cause," Chiavacci said. "We hope to collect donations and sell the rest of the shirts so that we can give a great donation to the cancer center."

The weather is forecast to be perfect for a hometown high school football game Friday night--cool, crisp and clear--so cover yourself in pink and attend the football game to cheer on your team and support an important cause.

The Winters Mill Falcons will face off against the Westminster Owls at 7 p.m. at Winters Mill on Friday night.

I think it's amazing when our younger citizens support a cause and get excited about it. It's the youthful enthusiasm and awareness of issues that will one day help us cure diseases like cancer. Bravo to the Winters Mill and Westminster High School communities for rallying behind this cause, and to all the students across the county who are participating in other Breast Cancer Awareness events this month. I'm so proud to be a part of this community. Go pink!
