Lake Park High School Football Team. For the past few years, the Lake Park Lancer football team has selected one of its games during October to do their part in raising breast cancer awareness. Along with the Lancer Nation student fans, they declare the night of that home game a Pink Out night, where all of the Lancer fans are encouraged to wear something pink to help promote breast cancer awareness. The players themselves have worn pink gear while maintaining their team uniform. Players at each level were asked to raise money to cover the cost of their pink gear as well as a donation to InGENEus Project.
