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.
