LOWELL, Mich. – A high school football game in western Michigan is hitting the big screen.

Lowell plans to hold a drive-in-style event Friday night to show its game against Northview and raise money to fight cancer.

“We will have a big screen on a trailer," organizer Teresa Beachum said. "We are going to position cars in a drive-in theater atmosphere, and we will livestream the game. People will be able to see the game as it happens."

Lowell's annual Pink Arrow game has raised more than $1 million over 12 years, but attendance at the field is restricted this year because of the coronavirus.

The Red Arrows usually wear red jerseys, but they’ll wear pink Friday. Each player will have the name of someone affected by cancer on the jersey.
