PINK OUT: Woodward-Granger Raises Money For Cancer

Woodward-Granger’s school colors are green and gold, but Friday fans at their basketball double-header were wearing a different color.

The school hosted a ‘pink out’ to raise money for the American Cancer Society and Coaches Versus Cancer.

Student Julia Evans organized the event as a senior project.

Evans plays for Woodward-Granger’s softball team, who recently lost their coach, Phil Creese to a battle with leukemia.

Julia’s teachers say her work is inspiring.

“Yes it was something she had to do for school, but taking this and doing such a huge undertaking as a high school senior, as a player, shes taking college classes, this is a huge thing to undergo. Her passion behind it is important.” Kendra Merkel said.

Each of the state universities donated items to a silent auction including a Fred Hoiberg signed basketball.
