Think Pink’ game set at Sequoyah Schools

— TAHLEQUAH — Sequoyah Schools will host its annual “Think Pink” basketball game at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 12 at Sequoyah Schools’ The Place Where They Play. The game is part of a nationwide breast cancer awareness event that encourages fans to wear pink shirts and teams to hold events to raise awareness of breast cancer.

In the past, Sequoyah’s “Think Pink” basketball games have raised more than $4,000. All money raised is then donated to the breast cancer support group at Cherokee Nation’s W.W. Hastings Hospital in Tahlequah.

Local breast cancer survivors are encouraged to attend and be part of the festivities.

Breast cancer survivors should confirm their attendance by contacting Barbara Neal with the Cherokee Nation Cancer Program at (918) 453-5138 or barbara-neal@cherokee.org. Game admission is $5 for adults and $3 for children.

Information: (918) 453-5542 or tshows@cherokee.org.
