The high school will hold Lavender Week Sept. 25-29 to raise awareness and funds.

You might notice an excess of purple at the Indians' football game Friday. There is a good reason for it.

Throughout the week of Sept. 25-29, Molalla High School is holding Lavender Week for cancer awareness. Each day of the week, students will be wearing a different color to raise awareness for specific cancer types. On Monday, they'll wear orange for leukemia; on Tuesday, it's blue for prostate cancer; Wednesday is pink for breast cancer; Thursday black for melanoma; and Friday is lavender for all cancers.

Then, Lavender Week will finish off at the home football game on Friday, Sept. 29 versus Estacada.

"At the football game, there will be lavender everywhere," said Taelyr Musella, the student representative to the board, at the Sept. 14 school board meeting.
