Pink Out Champions!
Local organizations and schools rally to join the fight against Breast Cancer and support the St. Clair Hospital Breast Care Center.
It what has quickly become an October tradition, eight area school districts teamed with the St. Clair Hospital Foundation to raise funds for the Hospital’s Breast Care Centers during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Students at Bethel Park, Chartiers Valley, Keystone Oaks, Mt. Lebanon, Montour, Peters Township, South Park and Upper St. Clair sold signature St. Clair pink bandannas at “Pink Out” football games, bake sales and throughout their respective districts, raising a combined $5,000 to support St. Clair Hospital’s Breast Care centers. The centers offer education, early detection, 3D mammography, treatment and surgical services. The funds support charitable programs and services for women in our community, including free mammograms for the uninsured. Each school was presented with a Pink Out Champions plaque as a thank you for the students’ generosity and hard work.
