Pack the Place in Pink

Posted: Updated:

Hundreds filled the Skyview gymnasium for the 7th Annual Pack the Place in Pink.

It's a fundraiser that began in 2007 when Coach Vicki Carle was diagnosed with breast cancer. What started with a group of girls wearing pink spandex for a volleyball game during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, transformed to a very well-known non-profit organization.

"Oh man, when this place first started, there was just a handful of people here. Now it's jam packed. So, it's been a lot of fun to photograph everybody," said Ric Zimmerman, Pack the Place in Pink Photographer.

With more than 11,000 T-shirts sold, Pack the Place in Pink continues to grow year after year and has even reached out to nearly 15 other schools across the state. Part of the money raised at Pack the Place in Pink goes to support the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
