Harrison High Raises $2,150 During First Breast Cancer Awareness Week
Pink donuts, ribbons, cookies, bandanas and more were sold at the Farmington Hills high school to support breast cancer research and raise awareness.
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.
