On Wednesday, October 30, Washington-Lee students will be called upon to wear as much pink clothing and accessories as possible. Every year, millions celebrate and take a moment to honor the month of October, due to the fact that it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This affects not only individuals, but people all around the world as a group.
Students will be challenged to see which General’s Period can wear the most pink in an appropriate fashion all in one day. Whichever period does win gets a pizza party. The message that the Cancer Education and Action Club is trying to send out is a simple one. Never fail to appreciate what you have, and always honor those who have won or fallen.
By raising awareness as well as funds with a bake sale on Wednesday after school, people will be able to feel as if they are making a difference. The club not only wants to honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but also other months, such as November for lung cancer, and so forth. We want it to be known that there is a huge amount of people who are reaching out just in search of a friend to help them on their journey when dealing with cancer. The students of Washington-Lee can be those people in so many different ways. By helping to dress in pink, we’re starting an entire journey of our own that is saying we care.
