The Kirkwood High School (KHS) volleyball team sported pink jerseys and pink hair highlights in their match against Francis Howell on Monday to show support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
The team raised over $2,700 by selling “Dig Pink” t-shirts. The team will be making a donation to Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, a local organization that helps raise money and awareness in the fight against breast cancer.
This is the team’s fifth year hosting a breast cancer awareness event and has raised over $6,500 collectively.
The team began the fundraiser because a former KHS volleyball player lost her mother to breast cancer.
