Student council members had a passion to help those suffering with Breast Cancer. This past October, the council members decided to be proactive by starting a new QG tradition of “QG Pink Day”. Students donated $1.00 to wear pink items, purchased pink cup cakes, and pink lemonade! The students raised $250.00 for Carolinas Breast Friends! Here are just a few facts worth knowing about breast cancer:
- 1 in 8 women will receive a breast cancer diagnoses in their lifetime
- According to the World Health Organization Breast Cancer is the most widely form of cancer for women world wide
- Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among women.
- Each year it is estimated that over 230,000 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 40,000 will die.
Thank you to all the QG students who participated in Pink day. Your generosity will help those who suffer from this dreaded disease in their fight for a cure!
