Armuchee and Coosa communities to participate in “Gold Out” game to benefit Rally for a Cure Foundation

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Armuchee and Coosa communities to particpate in “Gold Out” game to benefit Rally for a Cure Foundation

Rome, Ga. – September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and on Friday, September 22, the Armuchee and Coosa communities will come together for a “Gold Out” Armuchee vs. Coosa football game to Rally for a Cure and childhood cancer awareness. 

Rally for a Cure is a foundation that raises awareness and funds for childhood cancer research to find better treatments with fewer long-term side effects and, ultimately, cures. 

The Armuchee and Coosa community will join together in one shared location through their “Gold Out” football game to support this foundation and recognize kids from each community who are currently fighting or have recently fought the battle against cancer, truly demonstrating Rally’s "we're all in this together for all kids fighting cancer" motto. 

For the game, students-athletes, student band members, staff and student sections from both schools will be wearing gold and fans and the rest of the community are encouraged to do so as well. 

There will be a donation tent set up at the game with Rally information and some activities for those that stop by. T-shirts are also on sale and all proceeds will go towards the foundation. Order form can be found at the bottom of this release.
