At least three high school sports teams in the Chino Valley will host a "Pink Out" game in October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness month.

Ayala High School girls' volleyball will host its annual event between 4:15 and 4:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 4 inside the school's gymnasium at 14255 Peyton Drive in Chino Hills.

"We will have a ceremony for the fighters and survivors that will be attending our game as well as remembering those who have passed away," said Ayala volleyball team mom Holly Parker.

The ceremony will take place after the freshman and junior varsity games, which are both scheduled for 3:15 p.m., and prior to the start of the varsity game.

There is no cost to enter the gymnasium before 4 p.m., but there will be a $5 admission after 4 p.m.

Don Lugo High School football will honor breast cancer survivors and those who have lost their battle during halftime of their Friday, Oct. 4 game against Chaffey High at the Don Lugo stadium.
