Muskego school goes pink for breast cancer fight
Students raise $1,500 through various activities
Muskego — A week of fundraisers at Lake Denoon Middle School netted more than $1,500 for the southeast Wisconsin affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure to fight breast cancer.
Among the many activities that were completely voluntary were penny wars, an In Honor of Wall, Ribbon Door Puzzle and Pink Friday.
At the In Honor of Wall, students and staff placed a ribbon on the wall dedicated to a friend or relative who has battled breast cancer.
In the Ribbon Door Puzzle, each homeroom got "puzzle" pieces for their doors. An additional puzzle piece was added with each dollar donated. The homeroom that completed the ribbon door first received a prize.
On Pink Friday, all staff and students were encouraged to dress in pink.
Up to 75 percent of the money raised will be put to work in Southeast Wisconsin to improve the lives of those battling breast cancer. The remaining funds go to national research to find a cure.
