Real Rats Wear Pink

  • hope

    Real Rats Wear Pink is a team that represents the Huron Athletic Family.  We started this team in 2011 with the hopes to raise money for the American Cancer Society and promote Huron Athletics in a positive manner throughout the Ann Arbor Community.

    In our first two years, we have raised over $10,000 for Relay for Life! With a goal of raising $10,000 in 2013, we are looking forward to meeting and exceeding our fundraising goal and helping the American Cancer Society celebrate more birthdays.  Real Rats Wear Pink is honored to continue to support the fight against cancer.


    Bowl For A Cure
    Bowl for a Cure is our kickoff to fundraising! We raised over $1,200 in our first year running this event! With 46 bowlers participating in this event last year, our hope is for this event to grow even more this year!

    Swing For A Cure
    Our inaugural Swing For A Cure was held on May 18th, 2012 and we raised over $3,500 dollars with the help of 40 golfers.  We are looking to grow this event every year by increasing the number of participants and sponsors.

    Coaches vs Cancer Games
    Every season, Huron athletic teams hosts a Coaches vs Cancer game and enlist the help of the opposing team to help the Real Rats Wear Pink raise funds for the American Cancer Society.  With the help of the Football & Basketball teams, we raised over $2,000 during these events attended by over 2,000 people.  It has been a great way to get our message to people who have embraced our cause.
