Lower Dauphin High School students raised $3,000 for the Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition by designing and selling T-shirts for the school’s annual “pink out’’ football game.

The students, in Mandy Mease’s business education classes, created pink the “Fight Like a Falcon’’ T-shirts and sold them to faculty, students, family and the community leading up to the school’s annual football game where spectators, players, cheerleaders and band members wear pink to support breast cancer awareness and research.

Student representatives Mia Studenroth and Matt Perri presented Stacy Jones, a representative of the coalition, with a ceremonial check between the first and second quarters of Lower Dauphin’s football game with Northern York on Friday, Oct. 30.
