Rock the Pink!

It is time once again to ROCK THE​ PINK!

Rockcastle Co HS Rockets Football is partnering with Rockcastle Regional to spread the word about Breast Cancer Awareness month.  This year, we are also proud to welcome RCHS DanceBlue into the partnership.

On a special Thursday night game, October 30 at 7pm, your Rockets will host Wayne Co in the annual “Pink” game.   

T-shirts will be available for pre-ordering beginning now through Oct 13.  This year, proceeds from the sales will benefit Rockcastle Regional’s Hope Fund (for local families dealing with cancer), and UK DanceBlue (more info below).  T-shirt order form is attached.

Rock the Pink_14We hope to see everyone in PINK and at the game!

What is DanceBlue?

DanceBlue is a student-run charity organization based at the University of Kentucky that raises money to fight childhood cancer. The organization enhances the lives of suffering children and families across the state by assisting those treated at the University of Kentucky DanceBlue Pediatric Hematology and Oncology Clinic.

What does RCHS DanceBlue Club do?

DanceBlue Club helps students at RCHS raise money for the UK DanceBlue marathon total, which then goes to help the patients and their families while they are undergoing treatment at the UK Clinic. The money this club raises will help cover medical expenses, buy groceries, pay for the families to get hotel rooms to be near their child, staff a therapist at the clinic, and buy toys to raise the patients’ spirits while they are undergoing treatment.
