VSS pulls up socks for cause

Vernon Panthers sport pink in support of fight against breast cancer

The Panthers are having a Pink Week.

Vernon Secondary School athletes are pulling up their pink socks to support the fight against breast cancer.

The school is hosting four days of home games, including grade 8 girls volleyball, junior girls volleyball, senior girls volleyball, senior boys volleyball and senior boys football, Tuesday through Saturday with all their athletes wearing pink socks and raising money for breast cancer.

“We are often asking for support for our teams so this is a good way to give back as an athletic department and the kids can give back as well,” said Sean Smith, VSS vice-principal. Pink cupcakes will be for sale at the school all week to help with the fundraising efforts.

“It is nice to see that our school can come together for one cause,” said volleyball player Courtney Becker, Grade 11.

VSS is hosting volleyball games Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday after school and the senior boys football team is hosting Salmon Arm at 2 p.m. Friday.

“It’s a great opportunity to show school spirit and support breast cancer awareness,” said football player Carson Labrecque, Grade 11.
