Moeller and Elder team up against breast cancer

One in eight women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. At Archbishop Moeller High School, many mothers of football players have recently been diagnosed with this disease. This a personal cause for the Moeller family.

Moeller is partnering with Elder High School and Pink Ribbon Girls to raise awareness and celebrate breast cancer awareness month. The Moeller-Elder football game on Friday, Oct. 5 at 7:30 at Lockland High School Stadium will be the first in a series of games during the season that will be used to promote breast cancer awareness. Tickets can be purchased during school hours at Moeller or Elder High Schools or by calling the Moeller Athletic Office at 791-1680, ext. 1100.

“The football player moms will be wearing pink jerseys” said Kim Hauck, athletics administrative assistant.

Moeller will also be holding a Penny Wars fundraiser and sponsoring a Pink Wall where students can list any family member or friend who has battled breast cancer (won, lost, or still fighting the battle).

“If we can help just one person, all the work is worth it,” said Hauck. “Girls as young as 16 are now going through breast cancer. We cannot start awareness too soon.”
