Mark Twain St. Joseph’s Hospital has once again teamed up with local youth football teams for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Bret Harte and Calaveras Football, Cheer Association and the Calaveras Junior Redskins and the AMA Bullfrogs will spread the word about breast cancer during the month of October.
The Calaveras Junior Redskins joined MTSJH for the Pink in the Night Lighting ceremony. Mark Twain St. Joseph’s will have a breast cancer awareness booth at the CHS Varsity football game tonight and there will be a special halftime ceremony for survivors. A booth will also be set up Saturday at the Junior Redskins home game where gifts will be handed out to all mothers and the same ceremony that took place at CHS will take place at the Bret Harte High varsity game Friday, Oct. 19.
Both football programs and cheer squads will hand out pink bracelets and commemorative footballs to families in attendance. All football players will have pink ribbons on their helmets which they will wear for all of October to signify hope for a cure.
