High School Football America's Pink Arrow Pride Video mentioned in NY Times Blog

7 minute video vignette focused on Lowell (Michigan) High School's pink game that has raised $300,000 for cancer prevention, research and support.

Oct. 14, 2010 - PRLog -- Chicago, IL  -  New York Times' writer Joe Drape mentioned High School Football America's recently released video Pink Arrow Pride in his Quad Blog on Tuesday, October 12, 2010.

Drape, who in 2009 authored the high school football book Our Boys, called the video vignette on Lowell (Michigan) High School playing in pink uniforms to raise money and awareness for cancer "moving".  

The Pink Arrow Pride game features the Lowell Red Arrows turning into the "Pink Arrows" by wearing pink jerseys in the battle against cancer.

"What has been happening in Lowell over the last three years with its Pink Arrow Pride game, epitomizes the type of stories that we're looking to tell," said Jeff Fisher, Founder/Editor-in-Chief of High School Football America.  "The people of Lowell are a living example of the slogan, 'Think Globally, Act Locally''.  If you think real men don't wear pink, just check-out the video.

In three years, Pink Arrow Pride has raised over $300,000.
