Two Area High Schools Battle It Out For A Good Cause

Most nights you would find the Springlake-Earth Wolverines and the Sudan Hornets battling it out on the football field. But there's a different competition underway. This one is to save lives.

"The goal is to raise cancer awareness in the town and in the community and by buying these shirts you're able to show what kind of cancer has affected your life," said Marcos Lopez, a student at Sudan HS.

The shirts come in one of nine different colors, each representing a different type of cancer.

"It's a really good way to raise money for cancer patients and raise cancer awareness," said Quai Collom, a Springlake-Earth High student.

The schools will work hard until October 31st to raise as much money as they can. Then on November 2nd during a football game between the two rivals, the results will be announced.

"After the game we'll see who sold the most shirts," said Quai.

"Whoever wins will get to "pie" the losers in the face and I really don't want to get pied," said Skylar Sowder, Sudan HS.

But it doesn't end there, oh no, the "pieing" continues!

"Whoever wins the football game, the other officers get pied," added Skylar.

So the schools run the risk of being pied twice if all the chips fall in favor of the other team. But of course it's all in good fun for a good cause and these students have a message to every cancer survivor out there.

"You can survive through it. And you're going to make it and there's people who believe in you and there's people all over who want to help you and want other people to find a cure for cancer so you have less suffering and less pain," said Quai.

The t-shirts are $10.
