Chatham High School staff participated in a month-long awareness campaign during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October. Staff members designed t-shirts to raise awareness and wore them each one Friday to demonstrate support for those battling the disease.
The CHS staff organization, the Sunshine Committee, spearheaded the campaign.
Cindy Gagliardi, a Sunshine Committee member, explained the motivation for the staff awareness campaign, “We had never organized our support for breast cancer research before, as some people would wear pink ribbons for family members or friends who are survivors. This year we decided to show an organized, dedicated ‘fight club’ mentality to show our strength in numbers. The money raised went to a cause close to many of our hearts.”
