Joppette Posted September 7, 2011 Share Posted September 7, 2011 In our little town, we are about to celebrate what is a big deal. It's the annual football game for the Pink Arrow Pride. They have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the Lowell Gilda's Club, and the Lowell Community Wellness that donates a lot of money to people dealing with cancer. Every year (now in it's 4th year) people come to the game wearing pink shirts. The football players wear pink jerseys with the names of loved ones on their back. It's a big deal. Here's the link: http://www.pinkarrowpride.org/page1/page1.html You should see this thing. Thousands of people will show up for the game wearing their pink shirts, and sharing memories of loved ones with this disease, or who passed from it. It is truly memorable. Today I am meeting with a local TV station to give them a tour of the Gilda's Club in this town. One of the members will be there to share her story as well. It means so much to me to be able to share the history of this club, and the heart of this town. It is an honor to be a part of this. My niece will be playing in her varsity volley ball game with my name on her jersey. How cool is that? Anyway, just wanted to share the excitement that is surrounding our little town this week. I even think The Today Show is going to be here. They heard about us and want to show it to the world. It's so exciting! Wishing you a great Wednesday.
