CRANFORD, NJ – To raise awareness about breast cancer during the month of October, the color pink can be seen in many places. Sports teams from the professionals to the youngest athletes add a pop of pink to their uniforms in a show of support.

The Cranford volleyball team took it a step further last week when they hosted a “Pink Out” for the second consecutive year. They sold T-shirts, snacks and raffled off 31 baskets, to raise awareness and funds for Cranford Relay for Life.

The day was dedicated to the memory of Christine Bagniewski, a Cranford High School teacher and mother of JV volleyball coach Kari, who passed away in the spring and Nancy Campbell, a CHS guidance counselor who lost her battle to cancer last summer.

Members of the CHS Women’s Ensemble began with an acapella version of the National Anthem followed by “Dancing Queen” dedicated to the memory of Campbell.

The first event was a goodwill volleyball game between the CHS faculty/staff and the varsity/junior varsity teams.

The faculty took the first match from the varsity, the JV team took the second and the third match was a faculty challenge to the varsity, where the varsity prevailed.

“It’s great to get all of the girls and the staff involved in this, it’s a lot of fun,” said head coach Kelly Helfrich.
