Purple Tornado football fans encouraged to go “pink”

NORWICH – Chenango County Relay For Life co-chair and NHS Varsity Cheerleading coach Marie DeSarro and her squad are urging fans of the Norwich Purple Tornado Modified, JV and Varsity football teams to go “pink” for Friday’s game versus Chenango Valley.



Last year, the team wore pink ribbon pins for one game in support of the American Cancer Society, reported DeSarro, who said the cheerleaders wanted to step it up a notch this year by wearing pink uniforms and “asking that folks coming out to the game wear pink.”

The timing for the “pink-out” was perfect, according to DeSarro, as the Varsity game falls on the first of October, recognized as Breast Cancer Awareness Month by the American Cancer Society.

The JV and Modified games will be held Saturday and next Wednesday, respectively.
