Oct. 31, 2016
Duanesburg Jr./Sr. High School students and staff showed their support for the fight against breast cancer this month, raising awareness, funds and some fun as well through on-campus activities.
On Oct. 26, faculty and students alike donated $5 to dress in pink for the day. The photo above shows some of their impressive bright pink results. The day's attire included "Pink is Strong" shirts, vibrant sweatshirts and colorful leggings, as well as some pink hair and jewelry.
The Class of 2022, meanwhile, has raised $1665.80 to-date by selling baked goods, pink ribbons and pink hair extensions and through generous donations. According to School Counselor Kristina Goebel, "Siena Hallberg, Ella Moses and Bailey Grenier got the movement started by selling the baked goods each week. All of the proceeds will be donated to a breast cancer foundation. The Class of 2022 and its advisors would like to thank Turnpike Tresses and the community at large for their generosity."
