Concordia will host its Pink Out volleyball game on Friday, Oct. 24, at 6 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. in the Walz Arena. The game, which will feature Concordia vs. Briar Cliff, is part of Concordia’s Pink Week activities to raise awareness and donations for breast cancer. All attendees are invited to wear pink.
“Pink Week helps our students connect with others who have either had breast cancer or lost someone to it,” said Concordia Director of Student Development Rehema Kavugha. “It is an honor to give our students an opportunity to remember their loved ones and, for those who have been fortunate enough to not deal with it, the opportunity to learn about it.”
The volleyball game will also include a bake sale to benefit Pink Bandanas, a non-profit organization that helps Nebraska families affected by breast cancer. There will also be a silent auction for a cake donated by Tasteful Indulgence, as well as various giveaways throughout the game.
Concordia will host Pink Week activities for Concordia students Oct. 20-24. Activities include a girls’ pajama party to learn about women’s health issues, a Pink Out pep rally to prepare for the volleyball game and a “Find the Flamingos” social media campaign where students can post pictures of themselves with pink flamingos placed throughout campus to raise breast cancer awareness.
All Pink Week events are sponsored by Concordia’s Health and Wellness Center, the Concordia volleyball team and the university’s Community Building Committee.
