ASB begins breast cancer awareness week

Students will raise awareness about breast cancer by fundraising for Breast Friends this week


ASB has put together breast cancer awareness week and designed pink-out shirts to sell to students for the upcoming pink-out game on Friday. Proceeds will go to Breast Friends to support breast cancer awareness and those affected by the disease.

“We did a breast cancer awareness week instead of month because we thought it would be more effective and powerful,” Kylie Fretwell, sophomore ASB officer said.

By decorating the porches, making posters, creating pink-out shirts available and placing jugs for donations in the library, ASB hopes to raise funds and awareness at our school of how breast cancer affects those around us and members in our community.

ASB took the design of spirit shirts for this year and changed the color to make the pink-out shirts. This way they can be unique to this year and the students attending.

Fridays pink-out game against Sherwood High School will feature lengths of pink duct tape that will be passed around the student section to stick cash donations to Breast Friends on. Students will also be able to drop money into tubs in the library to vote for which teacher should be Lou the Lion, our school’s mascot, for Friday’s game.

 The teacher that accumulates the most money in their jar, will be wearing the costume Friday night at the home football game against Sherwood. Donations will also be collected during the football game.

“We expect a big, rowdy student section this Friday,” Fretwell said. ASB and leadership hopes that the event and the shirts available will help make students passionate about breast cancer awareness and how it affects us as a community.
