Coach Brittany Younkins wanted to honor and pay tribute to her best friend and grandmother, Mary Jane Armstrong (Nana) with a memorial basketball game. After 5 ½ years Nana lost her battle to breast cancer. Coach Younkins and the Girard 7th Grade Girls Basketball Team held a “Pink Out” game on Coach Younkins' 30th birthday, October 20, 2016, because Nana always loved being with Brittany and watching the Girard girls play and cheering them on.
Since the first "Pink Out" game they have held another game as well as holding a Chinese Auction during the month of October. This year, they raised $400.35 from the auction for the Regional Cancer Center Foundation.
