To start off the month of October, Bel Air High School decided to take over and find ways to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month, as well as show school pride and kindness by working together and raising money to help.


Bel Air High School had their annual Dig Pink Volleyball game to raise breast cancer awareness in the community of Harford County. The game was against Joppatowne on October 12, 2017. Students from both teams had raised money by allowing anyone who came to the game to purchase raffle tickets to try and win a prize of their choice which were gathered by parents and staff. The Bobcats ended up sweeping the floor with a win that night.


Students showed their spirit by wearing any Bobcat gear and their Pink out tee shirts from soccer and volleyball shirts from the following years during the month.


“I think the reason why a lot of people come to the pink out games is because they like the anticipation and the team really cheering people on.” says Jack Thompson, Junior Varsity Boys’ Volleyball Player


The students and staff of Bel Air High also took part in volunteering to participate in walking around in Bel Air, particularly Main Street, by decorating the town with pink.


Karah Campell, a Junior at Bel Air High School said, “The reason we put pink around Main Street is because it is the center of Bel Air, and often through the fall time we see people walking around outside to take pictures, or just enjoy the scenery. “


To anyone know someone diagnosed with breast cancer, they were given the chance to honor them by buying a pink ribbon at the Pink Out games which were hung around all over the school and outside of Bel Air High School.  


Money was also raised through the buying and decorating of pink ribbons at the Pink Out games in honor of those who have had breast cancer.
