Carroll Pink Out Game to be Held October 30

The 12th annual Dragon Pink Out Game will be held on Friday, October 30, when the Carroll Dragons take on the Keller Indians at 7 p.m. at Dragon Stadium. Pink Out is an event that was started by former CISD student Amy Moan, and continues today as a favorite tradition in Carroll ISD. Pink Out in Carroll ISD is focused on honoring our breast cancer survivors and raising funds and awareness to fight breast cancer.

Just like previous years, student groups will be incorporating pink items into their uniforms, and fans are encouraged to wear pink as well! Due to COVID-19 social distancing and capacity restrictions, CISD will not be able to have local survivors walk out through the tunnel in the pregame ceremony. Instead, there will be a special moment in the first half where the announcer recognizes all cancer survivors and they are invited to stand and be honored and celebrated by the crowd.

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 11 Pink Out game to even further the Susan G. Komen donation on behalf of CISD.. Dragon Stadium sponsor Berkey’s will be matching a donation equal to what Carroll raises during the pass the bucket initiative.
