Local sports briefs – September 5

Seymour football team plans ‘Pink Out’ night

The Seymour football team will have a “Pink Out” night Sept. 30 supporting the fighters, celebrating the survivors and honoring those taken by breast cancer.

There will be a celebration meal before the game (against Jennings County), which will be free to survivors, at Pizza Palace from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Guests of the survivors will be invited to eat at regular buffet prices.

Recognition will take place before the start of the football game at Bulleit Stadium. Survivors are asked to meet by the weight room at 6:30 p.m.

Each survivor will be escorted by a varsity football player through the football helmet on the field. The names of all attending will be read over the loud speaker after the national anthem and final songs have been played by the band.

A free-will collection will take place, and all profits will go to the Don and Dana Myers Cancer Center in Seymour.

T-shirts will be available to purchase or free to the survivors if they are registered by Sept. 8. Registrations will be taken after Sept. 8, but the free T-shirt is not guaranteed to survivors.

Memorial bags can be purchased for $15.
