VOLLEYBALL PINK OUT 2016
Pink was the theme when the HHS volleyball team hosted a celebratory Pink Out day Saturday, October 8, to acknowledge cancer survivors and promote mammographies during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We also honor all cancer survivors. Funds raised during this event are given to the MMH Foundation for the MMH scholarships for qualifying candidates for digital mammography exams at MMH. Preliminary figures show more than $3,000 was raised through donations, a silent auction, a bake sale, a kiss out caner poster, tumbler sales, a percentage of October sales of Montana Silversmiths jewelry at Jake’s Feed and the sale of Pink Out t-shirts.
We were honored to have our MMH CEO Trampas Hutches address the volleyball team and spectators and express his thanks on behalf of MMH and MMHF for the Pink Out funds.
Special thanks also to Cheyenne Radiology who supports this program by donating 10 free mammography reads each year for those qualifying. Scholarships are available for mammograms and mammography reads by request. Please contact MMH Financial Counselor Sharon Bernard at 970.854.2241 for more information.
T-shirts are still available through the MMH Radiology Department. You may order one by calling 970.854.2241. The shirts are pink with “Awareness is Power” on them! Special thanks to Tim, Jamie and Megan for selling these shirts for this cause and donating all funds raised from the t-shirt sales!
Thank you to the HHS Volleyball Teams, the MMH Radiology Department, Jake’s Feed, and all supporters of this event! Early detection saves lives…make your appointment today at MMH!
