The students at Bend Senior High are using this "Homecoming Week" to honor the alumni and raise money for the fight against cancer.
Sophomore Jessica Johnson says there is a special event each day, and Thursday is Cancer Aawareness Day. "So, the football team will wear powder blue jerseys in honor a Prostate Cancer Awareness, and the volleyball team wears pink. And we sell bands, we raise the admission prices to get into the games, and that money will be donated to funding research for cancer."
Johnson says they are also having a "Distinguished Alumni" assembly to honor and recognize past Lava Bears and some will be attending the event.
The big draws are the big football game Friday night against crosstown rival, Summit and then the homecoming dance on Saturday night.
