October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and that means we are all seeing a lot of pink. That extends to football games like the Gretna versus Elkhorn match-up this week. The teams and fans dressed head to toe in pink to support those who are battling and those who have battled breast cancer.
"It really means a lot to the people in the community who have had breast cancer or someone in their family who has had it,” said Megan Anderson.
Anderson’s mom is a 5 year breast cancer survivor. She says events like this provide hope and awareness. But it means even more to see her fellow classmates and friends support the cause.
“It’s really cool to know that all the guys and all the football team, they've customized these shirts, they make socks and they make sure that they are all wearing pink. Some guys even dyed their hair pink,” said Anderson.
Beka Doolittle, founder of ThePinkStore.com, helped plan the annual “Pink Out.” She says 10 percent of the proceeds will go to the Nebraska Susan G. Komen Chapter.
