Tigers Dig Pink to Raise Awareness About Breast Cancer
- Events and Activities
Tigers celebrated Dig Pink on Thursday, a community-wide event to raise awareness about breast cancer. More than seventy percent of students, faculty and staff showed up ready to cheer on the Frosh, Junior Varsity and Varsity Volleyball teams. Athletes and supporters sported pink outfits, tutus and sparkly signs as their cheers raised the roof off of the building. The NDB Cheer Team performed before the Varsity Volleyball team was introduced with an excitement-building video:
Tigers played great games against Menlo, and all gained awareness about breast cancer and how it impacts our community and the world at large. As of 2020, 7.8 million women were diagnosed with breast cancer in the past five years, making it the world’s most prevalent cancer. The United States Preventive Services Task Force recommends that women who are 50 to 74 years old and are at average risk for breast cancer get a mammogram every two years.
