Cheltenham Student Council Partners with Komen in the Fight against Breast Cancer during “Pink Out” Week
The Cheltenham Student Council is sponsoring its “Pink Out” partnership with the Susan G. Komen Philadelphia Foundation. The 2018 “Pink Out” Week will run from October 8 -12, and culminate at the CHS football team’s “Pink Out” game versus Hatboro Horsham on Friday, Oct. 12 at 7 p.m. The goal of this program is to raise awareness and funds to help more women and men in our community survive breast cancer.
Under the umbrella of Dietz & Watson’s unique “Pretty in Pig” program, students, staff and families will have the opportunity to make an impact in the fight against breast cancer by donating what they can in an effort to win a “Grillebration” hot dog party for students courtesy of D&W. Each school will receive 20 small piggy banks, which will be disbursed to the classrooms of teachers who wish to participate. The high school will host a giant piggy bank near the attendance desk across the lobby from Stretton Hall (and cafeteria during lunch) as an awareness builder. Students will decorate, name and generally make the giant pig their own. Students will also receive breast cancer awareness literature.
The 10 classrooms with the most money raised will be treated to the “Grillebration” at a yet to be determined date. Winners will be announced during the week of October 15 after all the funds have been collected.
Student Council will be selling “Pink Out” T-shirts for $10 the entire week. Students who purchase a shirt gain free admission to the football game.
