October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and high schools across the country are taking an active roll in raising awareness and raising funds for a cure. Hartland continues its traditional PINK OUT game and will host the Grand Blanc Bobcats on Friday Night for a shot at a piece of the KLAA West Division title. So get decked out from Head to Toe in Pink, bring a couple extra bucks to donate and Cheer our Eagles on to a PINK Victory! Stay Tuned for more details about our Hartland PINK OUT as the week continues. #HartlandGoesPINK
Our Eagles are 5-1 overall & 3-1 in KLAA West action, while the Bobcats are also 5-1 overall and 4-0 in KLAA West Division. Hartland is motivated and building momentum just coming off a huge win over cross-town rivals Brighton, defeating them at their Homecoming 27-7. The Bobcats took down Brighton 13-10 in their last meeting a few weeks ago and are fresh off a win over Pinckney last week. This Bobcat/Eagle match-Up is sure to be a thriller with so much on the line. Check out the KLAA Standings HERE Photo’s of HHS Varsity football can be seen HERE and the Official Photo page HERE
In the NFL…
The campaign, “A Crucial Catch”, in partnership with the American Cancer Society, is focused on the importance of annual screenings, especially for women who are 40 and older. Throughout October, NFL games will feature players, coaches and referees wearing pink game apparel, as well as additional on-field and in-stadium branding – all to help raise awareness for this important campaign. Much of the apparel worn at games by players and coaches, along with special game balls and pink coins will be auctioned off at NFL Auction, with proceeds benefiting the American Cancer Society’s Community Health Advocates implementing Nationwide Grants for Empowerment and Equity (CHANGE) program.
