Carroll ISD Celebrates a Decade of Pink Out

The 10th annual Dragon Pink Out Game will be held on Friday, October 5, when the Carroll Dragons take on the Denton Guyer Wildcats at 7:00 p.m. at Dragon Stadium. The Pink Out game will kick off national breast cancer awareness month in Carroll ISD, which will honor breast cancer survivors and raise awareness and funds to fight breast cancer. Pink Out is an event that was started by former CISD student Amy Moan, and continues today as a favorite tradition in Carroll ISD.

Prior to kickoff at the Pink Out Game, there will be an on-field recognition for breast cancer survivors. Survivors from all branches of the Dragon community are invited to attend and be recognized on the field, along with receiving a free pink survivor t-shirt for the event. If you are a breast cancer survivor interested in participating, please fill out this form. 

Survivors who are participating in the pregame celebration will also receive a free reserved parking pass for the evening and premier parking at Dragon Stadium, as well as free admission to the game.

Carroll ISD will raise money during Pink Out month by offering employees the chance to wear jeans with pink shirts every Thursday during the month of October. The funds raised from Dragon employees at all campuses and offices will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, the largest breast cancer organization in the united States. Additionally, a “Pass-the-Bucket” donation will be taken at the October 5 Pink Out game to even further the Susan G. Komen donation on behalf of CISD.
