La Jolla High Celebrates Cancer Awareness By Going All Pink

La Jolla High School is currently in the middle of Cancer Awareness Week. Traditionally, La Jolla High celebrates Breast Cancer Awareness week during October. In a movement to help support more victims, this week is focused on all types on Cancer. The La Jolla High ASB has planned great new events, combined with annual activities from past years.

During this entire week, the school is selling merchandise to help raise money for Rady Children’s Hospital. Pink Viking shirts, multi-colored wristbands, pink pencils, and ribbons will be sold. All proceeds will be donated to SOMBFAB, which stands for “Some Of My Best Friends Are Bald”. SOMBFAB is a teen support group that helps teenage cancer victims and siblings. Located at Rady Children’s Hospital, the program has grown very successful over the years. La Jolla High is working hard to reach its target goal of $500 to donate by the end of the week.

One new addition this year is going to be the “Pink Out” at friday night’s home game. Following the widely successful “Black Out” at Blast Off, the school has decided to encourage all students to wear pink at the game. With the popular support of the NFL during October, this event should be a huge success. For more information on the schools activities and how you can help, visit their website or check out their Facebook. We hope to see you at the “Pink Out” game friday night!
