High School Football America in Lowell, Michigan for Pink Arrow Pride Game

High School Football America

It's hard to believe that it's been a year since I first traveled to the small town of Lowell, Michigan for the 3rd annual Pink Arrow Pride Game.

This evening I arrived back in this incredible town of 4,000, southeast of Grand Rapids, that turns pink once-a-football-season to help its community members that are battling cancer.  A smile immediately came across my face when I saw Main Street's lamp posts (see photo) decorated with last year's ubiquitous pink t-shirsts.

I arrived early this year so I can check-out the education process that takes place throughout school district. Starting tomorrow, every child in the district will be taught the importance of coming together to help those less fortunate with age-appropriate classroom discussions about cancer.

In three year's Lowell has raised $750,000 to help those dealing with cancer.

Here's the story High School Football America did last year that brought the Pink Arrow Pride game into the national spotlight.

Stay with High School Football America all week for updates on everything surrounding Pink Arrow Pride, including Friday night's game between Lowell and Muskegon Reeths Puffer.

One interesting fact, Lowell is a perfect 3-0 while wearing pink, and the Red/Pink Arrows haven't allowed a point in those three victories.
