Students from Sacred Heart Academy, Assumption, St. Xavier and Trinity high schools raised funds for cancer research and treatment through their annual Pink and White flag football game. The game took place April 27 on St. Xavier’s campus.

Sacred Heart Academy won the friendly game of flag football for the sixth consecutive time, according to the school. In addition to the game, boys from St. Xavier and Trinity provide entertainment by performing choreographed dance routines.

Proceeds from the event support Norton Cancer Institute and Gilda’s Club Kentuckiana.

Since the Pink and White Game started in 2008, it has raised close to $375,000. Before the match, cancer survivors and their loved ones were invited to walk onto the field to be recognized.
