PinK Club Raises Funds and Awareness about Breast Cancer
Posted on 12/09/2016
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, the members of the Club wanted to not only raise money to help victims of this disease but also to raise awareness. Students accomplished this by reading facts about breast cancer as well as leading prayers over the loud speaker for one week in October. In addition, club members encouraged their fellow classmates to wear the color pink to show support. With permission granted from Sister Donna, students held a bake sale and sold hats that were allowed to be worn every day in school during the month of October. Thanks to everyone’s generous donations the members of P.inK. raised $625.

The executive board recently visited St. Peter’s Hospital to donate the proceeds. The girls were given a tour of the breast cancer center and were shown how the money would be used to help women who cannot afford mammograms. 

As a community, it is imperative that we come together and support such an important cause and we are very proud of not only these club members but Bishop Ahr as a whole for bringing awareness!
