Local breast cancer support organization PinkAid is collaborating with the Staples football team to raise funds and awareness for the disease over the next month. Staples will host its annual Pink Out game on Thursday, Oct. 2 at 7 p.m. as the Wreckers host Stamford.

Players, fans and the Wrecker community will be sporting pink to demonstrate their support. Cheerleaders kicked off the sales of PinkOut shirts this week. Sales will continue at various Wreckers events, including Staples and PAL football games, leading up to the Oct. 2 contest. All proceeds go to PinkAid.
