Harrison High School's first-ever Breast Cancer Awareness Week, Oct. 15-19, raised $2,150 in just five days to support breast cancer research.
Activities involving the school's Think Pink Club, students, staff and parents included:
- Students enjoyed pink donuts on Wednesday and paid $1 to wear a hat to school on Thursday.
- Think Pink Club members sold pink ribbons, pink cookies, pink bandanas and t-shirts/sweatshirts with breast cancer awareness graphics each day.
- Friday was our PINK OUT, both during the day and at the home football game against West Bloomfield.
- Varsity football players and coaches showed their support by wearing pink football gear at the game Friday night, and by donating $300 themselves.
- Pink posters hung throughout the school shared several breast cancer awareness facts.
- Several posters were displayed, highlighting Harrison staff members, in order to make the efforts more personal and give a recognizable "face" to the campaign.
