What it means when two become one. The Facts: Breast Cancer!!!. 1 in 8 women or 12.6% of all women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime Breast cancer risks increase with age Every 13 minutes, a woman dies of breast cancer 77% of women with breast cancer are over 50
There are many ways to raise money for breast cancer. Our student council chose to sell breast cancer t-shirts, and wristbands.
Have a powder-puff game at your school to raise money for breast cancer, maybe have a $2.00 admission fee
Have a bake sale to raise money, sale cookies and/or cupcakes; students LOVE goodies!
You can also have a “pink pep-rally!” make the theme of the rally, ALL PINK. You can have a booth set up to sell breast cancer accessories in the pep rally, like bracelets or key chains
Middle Schools can’t do all the activities high schools can, like powder-puff games; however, all hope IS NOT lost! You too can raise money!
If you are in middle school you can set up water jugs throughout your school and have students and teachers drop their loose change in the jugs. Consider making it a competition to make it more interesting. i.e. each grade for themselves. All proceedings can go to Susan G. Komen
Another idea is to sell tickets for 1-$2.00 which will allow students to get out maybe 15 minutes early for lunch, this has been proven to be a great money-maker!
