The Star Steppers and NHS members have begun selling Pink Out shirts to raise awareness for the fight against breast cancer. $5 out of the $15 cost will go to help local mom and LISD employee Beverly Somes in her fight against breast cancer. The remaining proceeds will go to Ross Breast Center.

“Every year NHS and Drill Team join together to fundraise for the Ross Breast Center,” Drill Team Director Keri Pierce said. “This year we want to do something a bit more personal so we will be donating $5 from every shirt to Beverly Somes to help her in her battle with breast cancer.”

Pink Out shirts can be bought from Keri Pierce in Room 123, or you can buy them from any Star Stepper or NHS member.

“We’re so excited because even though the cost is a bit more this year we get to benefit Mrs. Beverly,” Star Stepper Captain Sydni Segroves said. “She’s been such a big part of our lives and she’s such a light that it means so much to finally give back to her.”

The Pink Out game will be October 25 at home against Mount Pleasant. Students and parents are encouraged to wear their Pink Out shirts in order to raise awareness for breast cancer.

“The drill team is very excited to do something to help the community,” Pierce said. “We admire these women for their courage in going through the battle against breast cancer, and we want to help them in any way we can.”
