In October, RHS wears pink!
Jasmin Morse, Veritas Web Editor
Every year, people raise awareness of a disease that many has been touched by, Breast Cancer. Whether it’s a fundraiser, walk, or simply a day to dress in pink, schools all over the country come together in the month of October to raise awareness to end this horrid illness.
This includes the RHS! Throughout September, A-Block classes have been asked to donate money to help support the fight against Breast Cancer. Whichever class raises the most money by October 1 will win a free breakfast of their choice. Also, the two runner ups will receive a box of munchkins. If the high school is able to raise at least $1,000, Mrs. Armstrong, Ms. Paulding, Mr. Finn, and Ms. Shaughnessy will dye their hair pink.
RHS science teacher, Angelina Armstrong and RHS Vice Principal, Kathy Paulding pause for a photo op with their newly dyed pink hair October of last year.
Another event the RHS participates in to support the fight is the annual Making Strides Breast Cancer walk in Boston. Numerous clubs, teams, and students have signed up to participate in this year’s walk which is occurring this Sunday, October second. Students of all ages look forward to this walk every year because it is a time to spend time with friends, exercise, receive community service hours and raise awareness for a great cause.

Don’t forget! Tomorrow, September 29, is RHS’s annual Pink Out Day! Get decked out in pink to show your support.
