Black, Silver and Pink: Students participate in pink out for breast cancer awareness


Rebekah Williams

October is national breast cancer awareness month. In support, students and teachers were encouraged to ‘pink out’ the hallways and football stands Friday Oct. 13.  

The National Breast Cancer Foundation hosts an annual campaign to get the importance of donating to the foundation to the world, and what better way to do that in pink. One out of every eight U.S. women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of their lifetime, and doctors say early detection of the cancer can save lives. The support that from the awareness brings helps raise the importance of getting a check up and staying healthy.
