Patterson goes Passionately Pink to fight breast cancer
By Deyanna Bell, Patterson Press staff writer
Staff and students at Patterson High School showed their support and raised awareness about breast cancer on Thursday, October 27th by wearing pink shirts, ribbons or buttons. These actions were part of “Passionately Pink for the Cure Day”, which was organized by Ms. Brett, Ms. Hall-Butler and Coach Kelley Bagdasarian in recognition of breast cancer awareness month. “As a female, [breast cancer] is something to be aware of and help others to be aware”, Coach Kelley told the Patterson Press.
In addition to encouraging students, teachers and staff to wear pink, the organizers also planned a fun event called” Ladies Night Out”, featuring zumba and yoga lessons as well as performances by Patterson student dancers. Tickets were sold for five dollars per person and the event was held in the auditorium. All proceeds were donated to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation. Students also went from class to class collecting donations for the same charity.
Whether it is for someone in your family or someone you don’t know, please support the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation to find a cure for breast cancer. The Patterson Press would like to thank Coach Kelly and all the staff and student members of Patterson High School who participated in this wonderful event .
