Lowell, Mich. (WZZM) For the seventh year in a row, the community of Lowell is rallying behind the most famous fundraiser in West Michigan.
The Pink Arrow Project has raised more than a million dollars to fight cancer and help cancer patients. Tuesday was "Community Day" in Lowell giving residents their first chance to buy the popular pink "Arrowforce" tee-shirts that will be worn this season.
"With the cancer that has affected our small community, people have really rallied around this," says volunteer Beth Stevens. "It's helping people right here in our town who need help."
Liz Pratt is a breast cancer survivor. She was diagnosed two years ago but is winning her fight. "At first it was very frightening but the friends here in our community and my family, that's what helps you get through those tough times."
The Pink Arrow game will be played Friday, September 5th against Chicago Hubbard High School. A crowd of thousands wearing their pink shirts will fill the stands. For photos of last year's game click here.
