Arkoma Football - We have a cancer awareness football game every year during football season. Most schools push pink out during October, but we feel that every cancer is important so we do lavender And recognize everyone that’s battling this horrible disease! We do an ALL Cancer Awareness Night. We have boards with different cancers on them for fans to sign the names of survivors and those in memory. Our cheerleaders do a tribute routine at the half incorporating those signs with all of the names of those affected by a form of cancer. We then have survivors and family members of those no longer with us join the cheerleaders on the field. We are passionate about recognizing ALL that have been affected by any form of cancer!!!
Bremen High School - Tackle Childhood Cancer for Rileys children's hospital. Indiana high school football has partnered with this group to raise funds. This is a growing awareness game to provide funds for specific genomic testing in children with cancer. The game will take place anytime in September.
Carrollton Football - As a Football Program at Carrollton HS we have been sponsoring our Cancer Awareness Game for the past 7 years. This game always takes place in October with our players wearing everything from wrist bands, to mouthpieces, to shoe laces, to tape in pink. We also select a member of our community who is either currently receiving cancer treatment or in remission from their cancer as our Honorary Game Captain. We read a short bio on this individual and have them participate in the pre-game functions with our team captains and the call the choice for the coin toss. This has always been a tremendous event for both our Football Program and The Carrollton Community. If we could secure pink jerseys to wear for this game that would put this event, “Over The Top!”
Clarkston Wrestling - Wrestling in honor of a wrestling family member.
Coldwater Purple Games - Last year our varsity, JV & Freshman football teams joined together & wore purple jerseys that had the names of the person they were playing for on the back for our first annual purple game to help raise money for cancer awareness. We were able to raise $6000 in a short amount of time. This year we are wanting the event to be even bigger so we are including all fall sports to participate: volleyball, soccer, swimming, cross country & golf. Any help that we could get to make our event even better would be awesome!!!
Fowler Football - We are a small 6 man school and every year we promote breast cancer awareness like many schools across the country do. We wear as much pink as we can, from head to toe and include the ribbon on our helmet. We are a very limited funded school so most everything is done out of pocket. I am the current assistant coach and I purchase socks, sleeves, tape and stickers out of pocket for the kids to wear during our game! I have also purchased special coaching shirts in the past that are pink to involve everyone. I purchase pink paint and hand paint, like always, our beloved “F” at midfield prior to the game!
Freeland Football - We do a "Clash for Cure" that helps all affected by the many different cancers.
Fulton Football - We are a small school trying to keep 11 man football going. I was hoping something like this would help get kids out to play. We have been doing an all cancer game and I think having uniforms to go with this game would just help bring awareness and also help celebrate survivors in our community.
Garden City - We would LOVE to host a cancer awareness game. Usually we do one with Pink socks but it would really be great to have the Jerseys as part of that.
Holly Football - We have been running a PINK game since 2013. We have raised over 35,000 dollars to date.
Hudsonville Football - I know that cancer affects a lot of people. I graduated from Hudsonville High School and always wanted to do a game to support cancer. I told myself that someday I’m going to make sure that a support game will happen at Hudsonville. Winning this would mean the world to me and our entire school. I want to do everything I can to give back and this is something big. I played in the Addix All-Star Game supporting Gilda's Club this year and it felt great knowing that it was for a good cause. This would be for the football team.
Ionia Football - This will be the 9th year that Ionia has played a purple game. All money made stays in the community to help cancer fighters and survivors
Leslie Wrestling - The Leslie program would like to put on a cancer awareness dual and all proceeds will go towards the pink hawk fund that supports the Leslie community.
Millington Football - Cancer Awareness
Saginaw Heritage Cross Country - If we won, we would wear our cause game uniforms at our October cross country Invitational to honor Joanna who was a Heritage student and cross country athlete who endured brain cancer throughout high school, overcoming several bouts, and still maintaining high marks in the classroom as well as continuing to run when she was well enough to. Joana lost her fight in her sophomore year of college, but she taught us that life is to short not to smile - she stays an inspiration to all that knew her and to us as a cross country family.
St. Ignace Basketball - We have an annual Hooping for a Cure Basketball Game in January/February every year, and we would really like your help in making this event continue. We have raised over $150,000.00 for our oncology department!
- Each cause game category will have ONE winning school.
- Each winning school will receive 50 custom designed cause game uniform items (all must be the same item, example: 50 football jerseys, 50 volleyball jerseys)
- Schools may enter in all five categories, but CAN ONLY WIN ONE.
- Facebook and Instagram comments are based on UNIQUE votes. You cannot vote for the same program more than once in any category. Any duplicate votes cast by the same person multiple times on either Facebook or Instagram will only be counted once. Each person may vote for one school.
- The decisions by the Addix social media team regarding who advances in each round, and the winners, will be final. All of us on the Addix team will thoroughly tally each result at the conclusion of each round and post results after each round.
