Hoggard High School Plans First "Pink Day"
in Honor of Breast Cancer Awareness
Proceeds to Benefit Pretty in Pink Foundation
Hoggard High School students and staff will have the
opportunity to support breast cancer awareness during the
school's first "Pink Day." The Hoggard Student Council has
encouraged everyone to wear pink to show their support. In
addition, the group will be accepting donations in exchange for
face painting, ribbons and other items. Proceeds raised from
"Pink Day" will benefit the local chapter of Pretty in Pink, a
North Carolina-based breast cancer organization that offers
life-saving medical treatment.
"Pink Day" has been initiated and coordinated by Student Council
Sophomore Representative Cailtyn Campagna, who challenged her
fellow Student Council representatives to bring breast cancer
awareness to the high school level. Caitlyn plans to continue
her campaign in the future and challenge other local high
schools to participate next October.
