CLARK — On Friday, Oct. 26, the Arthur L. Johnson and Cranford High School cheerleaders joined forces to help raise awareness and money to fight breast cancer. Both teams promoted the Friday night football game as a “Pink-Out,” asking all fans to wear pink in support of the cause. The cheerleaders sold t-shirts to raise money for the Susan G. Komen Foundation. The ALJ cheerleaders raised over $1,400.
