Let’s face it—at no point in our lives is being “cool” more important than those ever-important high school years. The girls try and be cute and the guys try and be tough, and anything that takes them away from these goals is shunned…until now!
Most people have noticed that in the month of October, the whole world seemingly turns pink. Pink is the official color of breast cancer awareness, and now, you don’t have to wait until October to support the cause. Wearing pink has never been cooler—for girls AND guys—because it means you are truly connected with a cause.
High school athletes around the globe are supporting breast cancer awareness by wearing pink. Armbands, headbands, socks, shoes, shoelaces, and even jerseys have been going pink to support breast cancer awareness.
Wearing pink is a great reminder to both be aware of and screened for breast cancer. Pink items for sale can make great fundraiser items, and can also make a big statement! No matter how tough a guy may act, wearing a little pink is sure to show his caring side. Caring about mothers, daughters, aunts, grandmothers, and all the women in our lives is what wearing pink is all about!
After all, if the big guys in the NFL can wear pink every year to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research, so can high school athletes! Consider a pink fundraiser for your organization, as it will show that you truly care about such an important and impactful cause.
