Pretty in Pink

October is breast cancer awareness month, but Friday October 3, 2008 was Lee National Denim Day. This day started in 1996, with a simple philosophy "One day, one cause, one cure." This day was marked all over the nation by companies, schools, communities, etc wearing jeans and a pink shirt. Everyone who participated donated $5 to breast cancer research. Lee National Denim Day has raised more than $70 million for the fight against breast cancer and unites one million supporters nationwide each year. The HBMS goal was set for $500 but our school actually raised $700. We plan to continue to fight until a cure is found. Thanks for all of your support!
