Taking a Bite out of Cancer

Byron Center varsity football players head out on the field dressed in neon yellow jerseys to honor those affected by cancer

The Byron Center Bulldogs bit cancer Oct. 21 during their home football game. Varsity players donned neon yellow jerseys with the names of honorees who have battled cancer. Immediately after the game, players individually presented the jerseys to the person they were honoring or their family members.

The team hosted Bite Cancer Night to support the Bite Cancer Foundation, a nonprofit charitable organization whose mission is to serve and support Byron Center families that are actively battling cancer. The game is the initial Bite Cancer Foundation event.
