Local High School Students rally to join the fight against Breast Cancer
MONTOUR HIGH SCHOOL
Montour High School's Cure Finders members sold a total of 2,000 pink bandannas during lunch periods at various Montour schools, at Montour’s home football game against Moon Oct. 24 and organized a bake sale. The Cure Finders raised $1,500 which was donated to St. Clair at a ceremony on Halloween following a costume contest organized by Montour’s business and marketing class. Cure Finders members Olivia Rose, Jessica Rea and Hannah Gigliotti presented a check to St. Clair Hospital Manager of Organizational Advancement Kristen Crusan. Club members were in turn awarded a plaque recognizing their efforts.
BETHEL PARK HIGH SCHOOL
Students in the Principal's Advisory Counsel of Students (PACS) at Bethel Park High School, along with high school Principal Dr. Zeb Jansante, present an oversized check for $1,000 to Kristen Crusan, Manager, Organizational Advancement at St. Clair Hospital Foundation, on Wednesday, October 29 at the high school. The young men and women of PACS raised the money by selling pink St. Clair Hospital Breast Care Center bandanas at the high school during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In return for its generous donation to St. Clair's Breast Care Fund, the high school was named a 'Pink Out Champion' for the second year running.
Students at Mt. Lebanon High School raised funds to support breast cancer awareness. Photographed above are Claire Garvey and Kaitlyn Wilhelm, Mt. Lebanon's “Pink Out Chairs”, who helped to coordinate the fundraising efforts through the sale of the pink bandanas.
