PINE HILL – The Overbrook High School’s Girls Soccer Team has made a commitment to community service and highlighting issues of women’s health.

This year, the team’s Oct. 22 home game will honor cancer survivors. At half time of the 10 a.m. contest, cancer survivors will be recognized. Those who would like to participate should contact Coach Glenn Davis at gdavis@pinehill.k12.nj.us by Oct. 18.

For the past four years, the girls have been raising money and awareness in the fight against breast cancer. The home field is lined in pink, the center field displays the pink ribbon icon, and the girls wear pink jerseys for every home game in October. The team takes part in the Walk Against Breast Cancer at Cooper River Park, and this year, the fundraising expanded from the traditional solicitation of donations at half times, to also include a pink T-shirt sale for family, friends, and community,

In 2010 and 2011, the team members also participated in a ribbon tying event to promote Ovarian Cancer awareness. The team ties teal ribbons on telephone poles and public parks around the town of Pine Hill.
