Northwood hosted the annual fundraiser ‘Pink the Rink’ recently to raise money for cancer research. The CARE Community Service club did a ‘Pink Out’ on Saturday, September 23, where spectators dressed in pink to support the fight against Breast Cancer. To promote this cause, the school’s Varsity and Prep teams used pink accessories or taped their sticks with pink. The hockey games attracted many spectators to support the club’s worthy cause. In addition to raising over $500 in donations at the games, both hockey teams wrapped up the weekend with two wins apiece.

We raised just under $600 within the community and had a great turn out of students in pink!” said Kate Broderick ’22, the event organizer and co-leader of CARE. Broderick said the funds raised will be split and donated to the Susan G. Komen fund and American Cancer Society. “I wanted to do this as something fun students could dress up for and I chose breast cancer as our charity because of the many relatives and friends I know who beat breast cancer,” Broderick added.
