Wearing pink for breast cancer awareness is an annual effort by all fall sports teams.
The Minette’s Angels Foundation has donated pink socks and laces to the Verona High School students who play fall sports as part of its October breast cancer awareness outreach.

The football team will wear theirs this Saturday, September 27, at the home game against Glen Ridge, which starts at 1 p.m.

Girls tennis will go pink on October 2 and girls soccer will follow the next day. Boys soccer will have its turn on October 6 and volleyball will put on its pink gear on October 7. All of those games are home, and all begin at 4 p.m. except volleyball, which has a 5:30 p.m. start.

VHS cheerleaders will be wearing pink at all of these games.

The Minette’s Angels Foundation was created after the death of Verona resident Minette Grosso McKenna in 2003. In addition to raising awareness around breast cancer, it supports the care of other cancer patients and funds scholarships to Verona students entering the medical field, with a priority on nursing majors.
