BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - Pink socks, pink ribbons, pink clothing, pink balloons and banners; the Berkeley Heights PAL went pink for Sunday's home football games to show their support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
"It is nice to see that the Berkeley Heights PAL football and cheerleading program with student athletes form Berkeley Heights, New Providence and Mountainside can do our 'little' part in the fight against cancer. It brings the communities together as one," said Joe Graziano, Berkeley Heights PAL Football Commissioner.
Grace Broccoli and her Relay for Life team, The Spice Girls, had a bake sale during the games. "Despite the weather, we had a VERY successful day, raising over $600 for Relay for Life and the fight against cancer. Such a wonderful supportive generous community," said Grace's mom Patti, diagnosed with breast cancer and recently completed her chemotherapy treatments.
In October, pink serves as a reminder of what can come through greater awareness and more research in the fight against breast cancer.
