This year’s ‘Pink Out’ takes on new meaning PDF Print E-mail










Last Thursday’s games with Perkins County marked the third annual “Pink Out” held by the two schools as they joined together in the fight against cancer. At top, Imperial’s cheerleaders waved pink pom-poms and wore specially designed “Pink Out” shirts. One cheerleader decorated her socks with pink cancer ribbons. This year’s event took on new meaning with a member of the Chase County girls’ team, Makenna Wallin, fighting cancer in the form of leukemia. As a show of support, both Chase and Perkins County teams wore special warm-up jerseys that carried an orange cancer ribbon with Makeena’s jersey number, 23, printed on the back. In the girls’ game, both teams wore pink and white uniforms. Money earned from the event helps provide local funds for cancer patients that can be used during treatment, hospital stays and other needs. (Republican photos)
