Fight with Bulldog Power event successful


February 9, 2018

Carter County High School gymnasium was alive with color on Saturday, February 3, as Bulldog fans dressed to show their support for cancer research. The William C. Rowley Chapter of National Honor Society sponsored their annual “Fight with Bulldog Power” event that afternoon during the basketball games between Wibaux and Carter County.

Fans were encouraged to wear bright colors representing the colors of awareness ribbons for various cancers. Breast cancer’s pink ribbon is well recognized, but each type of cancer is represented by a color, with “all cancers” being lavender and caregiver support being plum. Janice Isaacs even sported orange hair in honor of her grandson, Dalton Beyer, who is a leukemia survivor. The basketball teams wore pink “Fight with Bulldog Power” t-shirts during their warmups, and many of the girls sported bright finger nail polish in various colors.

Twelve cancer survivors, including two from Wibaux, were honored with Bulldog paw water bottles signed and given out by the Bulldog basketball teams. Additionally, during half time of the boys’ varsity contest, there was a “minute to give it” where students went throughout the crowd gathering loose change. This activity brought in $470! Adding that to merchandise sales and another $100 donation, the event brought in over $600, which will be donated to cancer research. The tremendous support from the Wibaux and Carter County communities was overwhelming and greatly appreciated. Thank you for making this such a successful event!
