High School Starts New Fall Sport Tradition In Support of Cancer Awareness

North High Magnet starts a fall sports tradition. At every fall sports game they hope to bring awareness to those fighting cancer.

Thursday night the student council sold orange balloons during the varsity softball game. Then everyone released the balloons into the sky.

On the balloons, people wrote the names of loved ones who have fought or are still fighting cancer.

"Softball members, they have a coach that is going through cancer and family that have cancer, and it's not just breast cancer. So we wanted to make sure that all of the cancers get acknowledged," said Sheila Connor, Student Council.

Also part of the crowd was 2 year old Sydney. She is battling a brain tumor and is currently undergoing treatment at St. Judes. She was front and center during the balloon release.
