Red Out

ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 30TH HUNDREDS WILL GATHER TO SEE THE MATCH-UPS BETWEEN NORTON BLUEJAYS’ AND GOODLAND COWBOYS’ GIRLS AND BOYS BASKETBALL TEAMS.  HOWEVER, THIS YEAR WILL BE A LITTLE DIFFERENT.  RATHER THAN BLUE AND YELLOW ON ONE SIDE OF THE COURT THIS YEAR THE BLUEJAYS WILL BE RED.  A RED OUT WILL TAKE PLACE TO BRING AWARENESS TO HEART DISEASE.  DURING THE GAME WE WILL HONOR AND REMEMBER LOVED ONES WHILE HELPING TO FIGHT HEART DISEASE AND STROKE.  TEAMS, STUDENTS AND COMMUNITY MEMBERS ARE ENCOURAGED TO PURCHASE AND WEAR A “ROCK THE BEAT” T-SHIRT TO SCHOOL, TO WORK AND TO THE GAME IN HONOR OF OUR LOVED ONES AND THE AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION. OTHER HIGHLIGHTS OF THIS YEAR’S RED OUT EVENT WILL INCLUDE BASKETBALL PLAYERS WEARING RED SHOESTRINGS CHEERLEADERS CLAD IN RED, CHEERING ON BLUEJAYS AND ENTERTAINING CROWD. NCHS DANCE TEAM PERFORMING A SKIT/DANCE WITH RED OUT THEME, AND MORE.  THE RED OUT IS A GREAT WAY TO CELEBRATE LIFE OF FAMILY AND FRIENDS WE HAVE LOST TO THIS DEVASTATING DISEASE WHILE MAKING A DIFFERENCE BY HELPING TO SAVE OTHERS.   IF YOU CANNOT COME TO THE GAME BUT WOULD LIKE TO SHOW YOUR SUPPORT, YOU CAN MAKE A DONATION IN THE SCHOOLS NAME AND SEND IT TO JOAN BOLT AT EES.   ALL PROCEEDS GO TO THE AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION. IF YOU WOULD LIKE MORE INFORMATION ON HOW YOU CAN GET INVOLVED, PLEASE CONTACT JOAN BOLT AT 785.877.2122.  ORDER FORMS FOR T-SHIRTS CAN BE FOUND AT ANY OF THE THREE SCHOOLS OR NORTON RECREATION CENTER.
