You have all probably seen the pink accessories worn by professional, collegiate and even our local high school athletes to promote cancer awareness. Oxbow will take it one step further this fall and host three cancer awareness games.
Here's the details from Olympians athletic director Rich Thornton:
Just a reminder during the next couple of weeks fall athletic teams at Oxbow High School will have one of their remaining regular season games designated for cancer awareness. Along with the NFL and Universities across the country during the month of October, Oxbow student athletes will be donning pink socks, shoelaces, and wristbands to help support the fight against cancer. Also, a representative will be on hand from the Vermont Cancer Society to hand out pink ribbons to fans for a donation to cancer research. Fans are encouraged to wear pink to the game that day. All donations as well as a portion of concession sales will be donated directly to the Vermont chapter of the American Cancer Society. Below is a schedule of games.
10/13 (Sat) 11am Varsity Boys Soccer vs. BFA Fairfax "Kick Cancer Game"
10/13 (Sat) 1:30pm Football vs. Winooski "Tackle Cancer Game"
10/17 (Wed) 4:00pm V/JV Girls soccer vs. Hazen "Kick Cancer Game"
