Joining the Fight Against Breast Cancer

October is breast cancer awareness month and Susan E. Wiley Elementary has joined together in the fight throughout the month.

Kicking off their fundraising effort on Oct. 5, families were asked to make a donation to “turn the ribbon pink,” writing their names on small pink ribbons to fill in a larger pink ribbon that hangs in the main hallway. That event raised close to $300 alone.

To further the effort, staff and faculty at Susan E. Wiley are donating $5 to wear pink to school every Friday during the month, which will be donated to the American Cancer Society. The school’s “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” effort will also include a walk at Jones Beach on Oct. 16.
