AASD Superintendent Thomas Otto and AD Phil Riccio have designated tonight’s Mountain Lion vs. Gateway football game at Mansion Park Stadium as this year’s Gold Ribbon Game.
September is recognized as Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and the Gold ribbon is the official ribbon of children with cancer worldwide. Both the Altoona and Gateway football teams will show their support by wearing gold ribbon helmet decals. In addition, the AAHS marching band, color guard, majorettes, Lioneers, and cheerleaders will be wearing gold ribbons.
The Altoona Area School District has been instrumental in fighting back against childhood cancer since 2003 when one of its former students, Brian Morden, died of Ewing’s Sarcoma. Brian was a sophomore at AAHS when he was diagnosed with this rare disease, accounting for only 1% of all childhood cancers.
Honorary captains for tonight’s game are three childhood cancer survivors: Kiera Chirdon, an AAJHS 7th grader, Timothy Green, a 6th grade student at Juniata Gap and Abigail Miller, a 2nd grade student at Ebner Elementary. Other local childhood cancer survivors will participate in a special halftime presentation and will be featured in a short video presentation on the Mansion Park scoreboard.
