Special pink jerseys will be worn by the St. Joseph football team in support of this fundraiser. These jerseys will be pre-ordered and sponsored by friends or family members in honor of a loved one who has or had cancer. At the end of the game, these jerseys will be presented to the sponsors by the football team.
The SJHS Marching Band will pay tribute to those affected by cancer in a half time show, and all fall sports teams and cheerleaders will salute survivors as they parade into the stadium with a pre-game track walk.
All proceeds will go to assist local cancer patients in SW Michigan and will be distributed to the following organizations for their dedication in the battle against cancer.
1. Berrien County Cancer Services, Inc. that provides local cancer patients skilled oncology nursing services, medical equipment, nutrition, comfort care items, emotional support through their adult support groups and “Art Play Workshops" for children and their families impacted by cancer…all at no cost to Berrien County residents.
2. Marie Yeager Cancer Center that cares for over 83% of our cancer patients in Berrien County and provides oncology/hematology services for our local cancer patients, education, and supportive resources.
It is hoped that hundreds of supporters wearing event apparel will fill Dickinson Stadium on October 6th and unite for this cause.
