The tenth annual Pink and White flag football Game between Assumption High School and Sacred Heart Academy will be played to a sold out crowd at Saint Xavier High School’s football stadium, 1609 Poplar Level Road, Louisville, Kentucky 40217. The event raises breast cancer awareness with proceeds going to the Norton Cancer Institute’s Breast Health Program. Since its inception in 2008, the game has raised over $200,000 for breast cancer programs.
The evening begins at 7 p.m. with a special ceremony to honor breast cancer survivors and remember loved ones who have passed away from the disease. Students from the Assumption, Sacred Heart, St. Xavier High School, and Trinity High School will escort survivors onto the field and each will present an honored survivor with a pink rose. Students memorializing a family member or friend who have passed away from breast cancer will observe a moment of silence in their honor.
Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m. with halftime dance routines performed by the boys’ high schools. St. Xavier students will showcase a dance to cheer on the Assumption Rocket flag football team and Trinity students will perform to rally on the Sacred Heart players. This “role-reversal” concept was conceived to reflect a new interpretation of the famous annual football rivalry between St. X and Trinity. Tickets are not available at the event and may only be purchased at one of the four participating schools the week prior.
