The Chant

Everyone knows someone who has gone through the battle of cancer. Everyone has their own story to tell, whether they beat cancer to tell their own story or not makes every story special. When someone close begins to go through the process of cancer, it can take a huge physical and emotional toll on not only the individual, but also the community surrounding them.

Created by the NC Relay for Life (R4L) club, this banner lists the name of those in the Acworth-Kennesaw community, as well as NC as a whole, who survived their own bouts with breast cancer. It reads “Win the Fight!,” in reference to their goal to both eradicate cancer and improves the lives of those affected by it.

The Warrior’s basketball team will take on the Kennesaw Mountain Mustangs, a long-time rival, tonight January 15. Along with the competitiveness of tonight’s game, Relay For Life set the theme as “Pink Out” and will collect donations to fight against cancer. “I am excited to see how the game turns out since Kennesaw Mountain is such a huge rival to NC. I cannot wait to see everyone decked out in pink,” sophomore Drew Dodd said.

Come “b-ball” with the Warriors!

Sophomores Isabel Reid, Andrea Mayorga, Jireh Kelly, and Olivia Hannah stood outside Mrs. Essenburg’s room, embellishing her door for Relay for Life’s’ door-decorating contest. “We’re just making the door for the Relay for Life Breast Cancer Awareness Month,” Reid said. The students gathered around the door, chatting as they prepared for the win in the decorating competition.

In honor of October as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, NC changed the usual orange-out Friday to a pink out today. Relay 4 Life spent the past couple weeks selling “We Are Pink” shirts for students to wear. “I wore three sparkly ribbons for the people I knew who had breast cancer that died, and the other three are for those who had breast cancer and are still living,” said senior Ashton Husbands, wearing her We Are Pink shirt. “I’m really happy for the pink out day, because it’s extremely important to me.”
