The student council from Greencastle-Antrim High School in Pennsylvania recently put together a community-wide fundraiser to benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure, according to PublicOpinionOnline.com
The students sold pink t-shirts for $10 each at sporting events and throughout the community, and presented a check to the charity during a recent basketball game against nearby Waynesboro.
The student council also sold hundreds of t-shirts during a October 23 football game against Northern. The group created a pink-out, during which both cheering sections wore the shirts to support breast cancer, regardless of their team affiliation.
"I didn't think we'd sell all the shirts we had," student council member Emily Lutz told the news source. "We still had people wanting shirts after we sold them all and after the game was over."
The $2,100 check to Susan G. Komen for the Cure will go to breast cancer research and the organization was specifically chosen by the students for their work in fighting the deadly disease.
Susan G. Komen for the Cure is the largest breast cancer organization in the world and has invested nearly $1.5 billion since its inception, according to their website.
