October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It’s an annual campaign that helps raise awareness and money for the research and impact of breast cancer. Here’s some fun ways you can participate as a student.
Join a Breast Cancer Run!
Many runs are going on around the city this month in an effort to raise money for research. You can do your part by joining in on the fun. You can register as a runner or just run for fun. If running isn’t your thing, then no big deal. There are many opportunities to volunteer during a run! Help out in any way you can.
In today’s era of social media, it is becoming easier and faster to share information with your friends. Why not use that to your advantage! Share posts about breast cancer and prevention in your stories and spread the word. Anyone can be affected at any age so help educate others, and get them to support the cause as well.
As simple as it may seem, wearing a pink ribbon or wearing pink during the month of October can be a fun way to spread awareness! Get together with a group of friends or organize a Pink Out day at your school. Either way, showing your support goes a long way!
