Rival schools Assumption, Sacred Heart present Norton Cancer Institute with $27K check

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Traditional rivals joined forces Thursday for a good cause. 

Girls from Assumption High School and Sacred Heart Academy presented a check to the Norton Cancer Institute on June 1. The schools raised $27,000 from their 10th annual Pink and White flag football Game held in April.

Boys from Trinity and St. X also helped -- performing the half-time show as a dance team.

"This all started  with one senior's dream for a powder puff football game against Sacred Heart for breast cancer. It was one dream, and we have been able to keep her dream alive for ten years to teach all students that they can make a difference. They're not too young to make a difference.

Over the past ten years the Pink and White Game has raised more than $200,000 for the Norton Cancer Institute.
