Riverside pink out

Riverside High School goes pink this week to benefit the Loudoun Breast Health Network. Festivities culminate with Riverside hosting Stone Bridge in a varsity football game Friday night.

Riverside High School is ready to prove the power of pink with a "Power Up Pink" themed fundraiser for the Loudoun Breast Health Network. Riverside invites the community to show support Friday when the Rams host the Stone Bridge Bulldogs for a varsity football game.

Supporters of this year’s campaign will wear “Power Up Pink” T-shirts. The newly-designed T-shirts will be sold throughout the week before school at Riverside, during lunch shifts at Riverside and Belmont Ridge Middle School, and at Friday's football game. Cost is $10.

Raffle tickets, baked goods and other pink merchandise will be available for sale. All proceeds and donations will go to the Loudoun Breast Health Network.

Riverside DECA students have organized events throughout the week leading up to Friday's game, highlighted by the annual Powderpuff game Thursday night. After raising more than $18,000 last year, DECA students have set a goal of $20,000 this year.

Gates open at 6 p.m. for Friday's game, with kick off set for 7 p.m. Riverside is at 19019 Upper Belmont Place in Leesburg.

Thanks to the students of Riverside for running this fund raiser. Undoubtedly many of these students have been touched by cancer of one type or another. They are our future and the money they raise now will go to help not only current breast cancer patients but those to come. Kudos to them and the faculty and staff who support them!


Looks like the next generation will be winners. Great job!
