Join RHS’s Breast Cancer Walk Team

In the upcoming weeks RHS students, teachers, sports teams, and clubs will be supporting Breast Cancer Awareness month. A variety of activities, including Pink Out Day, t-shirt sales, and, most importantly, the Making Strides for Breast Cancer Walk will take place during the month of October.

This year RHS’s donation goal of $3,000 comes with a special incentive. Assistant Principal Kathleen Paulding and science teacher Angelina Armstrong have both vowed to dye their hair pink for the month if this goal is reached by October 1. The school’s overall goal for the months of September and October is $5,000.

Helping to reach these goals can be done by making donations to the “Rockland High School” team on the Making Strides website or through the purchase of breast cancer awareness t-shirts which are currently being sold in the cafeteria.

With a great deal of spirit and support, Rockland High School will help do its part in finding a cure for Breast Cancer in true Bulldog fashion.

For those looking to participate in the walk, directions for signing up can be found below.
