Breast Cancer Awareness
Mrs. J. Miller, District Health Coordinator
Our first effort to raise awareness to Breast Cancer, started with Lee Jeans. The department ran a district wide fund raiser through all the elementary and secondary schools. We totaled $1040.00 by October 5, 2012, the National Lee Denim Day. JFKHS YAC club raised $369.00 giving the district a total of $1409.00.
Mattlin Middle Schools Health Education Department and the Guidance Department partnered with the American Cancer Society and sold pink ribbons that students placed on a “Tree of Hope”. The departments also raised money by raffling off three beautiful baskets that were donated by the American Cancer Society and book bags that were donated by a cosmetic company.
This year’s efforts raised a total of $1781.00 for Breast Cancer Awareness.
