For the ninth year in a row, students from Purcell and Lexington High Schools are joining other students from across the state in the fight against cancer.
They are participating in Win-Win Week, a statewide initiative aimed at preventing cancer and raising funds to support Oklahoma cancer patients.
Win-Win Week is a program coordinated by the Oklahoma Cancer Center and the Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association.
To date, students from Purcell and Lexington schools have raised over $35,000 for this wonderful cause.
Students of both schools are making their way through the communities, knocking on doors for donations. Sponsoring businesses will be featured on a banner to be displayed during the ball game.
Funds raised by students during Win-Win Week will stay in Oklahoma to provide important support programs for patients treated at the Oklahoma Cancer Center.
This year’s “Pink Out” football game will be held in Lexington on Friday, September 14. A T-shirt has been designed for fans of both teams to wear to the ball game.
Students are selling the T-shirts to students of all ages and fans from both communities. T-shirt sales are currently underway and will continue through Friday, September 7. The shirts will be delivered to area schools and will be available to be picked up on September 13.
In addition to the T-shirts, students will be raising money throughout Win-Win Week by participating in various fund-raisers at the individual high schools.
The goal is to raise money for the Oklahoma Cancer Center and fill the stands with matching shirts during the ball game to show a united front and a determination to find a cure for this dreaded disease.
Order forms may be picked up at Purcell High School or Lexington High School.
