TRUSSVILLE — Whose city is pinker? We’re about to find out.
The seventh annual Turn Trussville Pink is evolving into a triple challenge this year with Trussville, Clay and Springville competing in a Tri-City Pink Out on Oct. 22. As in years past, donations generated by T-shirt orders will go to the Audie and Kathy White Cancer Research Foundation, which benefits breast cancer research at the UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center.
The difference this year is that although all the T-shirt designs are identical, each city’s version will reflect the local school colors. Trussville’s shirts will be Husky Red; Clay’s, Cougar Navy; and Springville’s, Tiger Purple.
“As always, universal pink T-shirts will be available, too,” said Joshua White, founder of Turn Trussville Pink. “But regardless of whether you choose a pink shirt or one in your school colors, you’ll be helping your city compete in the ‘My City Is Pinker Than Yours’ challenge.”
T-shirt orders will be taken this week only, Sept. 15-19. Students at Paine Primary, Hewitt-Trussville Middle, Hewitt-Trussville High, all Clay-Chalkville schools and all Springville schools can order through their schools. T-shirts will be available to the community at large at Carroll Pharmacy (Trussville and Clay locations), The Spotted Zebra, the Trussville Area Chamber of Commerce, The Pants Store (Trussville location only), Clay City Hall, Warren Family Gardens on Old Springville Road, and O’Town Boutique in Springville.
Anyone can order T-shirts at www.turnthecitypink.com through Sept. 21.
