WINDBER — Last fall, senior players representing the Forest Hills football team presented a $2,000 check to the Joyce Murtha Breast Care Center. To raise funds, the team hosted a teacher and staff dress-down day and the football boosters sold T-shirts at the annual Pink Out game on behalf of the team.

Their support helps fund Pink Ribbon Care, a program that provides assistance for patients who are unable to pay for breast-related health services, including mammograms, follow-up diagnostic services and genetic counseling.
