Pink Out Day at San Benito High School, Oct. 8, had students, teachers, and staff wear pink for breast cancer awareness.

Jonis Barcibal, a junior, said, “I wore pink to support my grandma. She is a breast cancer survivor and also to support all the other people who have cancer.”

Junior Manny Macias said he doesn’t have any family members with breast cancer, but he wore pink to support everyone who is battling the disease and hopes everyone who has it, beats it.

Jennifer Rodriguez said her mom thought she had breast cancer because she had a lump on her chest but it was nothing serious and that prompted Rodriguez, a junior, to wear pink to support everyone who has cancer.

Daniel Pasillas, a junior on the varsity football team, said he dedicated the football game to his grandfather who is fighting cancer and to everyone else who is fighting cancer.

Eli Mullen, a junior, said he wore pink for his cousin who lost her battle with breast cancer.

Junior Destiny Vargas said, “I wore pink to show support for breast cancer awareness and for my aunt that had breast cancer and fought through it.”

In professional sports such as football and baseball, the month of October is dedicated to wearing pink, to show support for those battling cancer.
