Tigard Football has been a long-time supporter of breast cancer awareness.
In recent years our efforts have increased dramatically. In August 2009, the wife of a Tigard assistant football coach was diagnosed with breast cancer. The team responded with a massive showing at the Race for the Cure that year followed by their annual Pink Game in October.
The Tigard student body has joined the fight as well, raising money through T-shirt sales, and the results have been amazing! Now our Pink Game is one of the biggest events of the fall.
Last year, Nike donated one-of-a-kind jerseys and cleats to the Tigers. The 2011 game was a sight like none other as the Tigers showed their support for the fight against breast cancer on the field, and students, parents and community members did the same from the stands.
Proceeds from the 2011 game, totaling over $1,000, were donated to breast cancer research.
