SPHS helps raise money for Komen Foundation

Staff Report

 

SOUTH POINT — The South Point High School athletic department hosted the “Pointers for the Cure” prior to the home football game Sept. 21 against Lucasville Valley.

The event continued at the Pointers’ volleyball game against Chesapeake on Sept. 25.

During both contests, participants expressed their support with a “pink out” in which both athletes and spectators came dressed in pink.

During halftime of the games all breast cancer survivors were honored as “Halftime Heroes.”

“I would like to thank everyone who was involved in making this event a success,” said South Point athletic director Dave Adams.

“We are planning to make this an annual event in an effort to spread the message of breast cancer awareness throughout the community.”

Athletes sold several items in which 100 percent of the profits were donated to the Susan G Komen Foundation.

The Komen Foundation is a widely respected organization that provides education and research to find a cure for breast cancer. The South Point athletic department raised $1,5000 to be donated to the foundation.
