Join JCHS Cheerleading, Football and Band as they tackle cancer with the annual Cheer for the Cure fundraiser benefiting THE KAREN WELLINGTON FOUNDATION
Your generosity will help provide carefree FUN for those LIVING with breast cancer. The Karen Wellington Foundation (KWF) is not your ordinary cancer foundation. They put FUN on the calendars of women and families LIVING with breast cancer – women with calendars full of chemo and radiation treatments, doctors’ appointments, tests, and more tests. Not-fun-stuff. KWF recipients are special ladies and families who are not done LIVING yet. They are sent on family vacations, relaxing spa days with sisters and other FUN-ONLY activities.
You can support the Cheer for the Cure fundraiser in several ways:
Pre-order a Pink T-shirt and Pink Paper Cancer Ribbon(s) to honor loved ones in our JCHS family and community. Each pink cancer ribbon purchased allows a name to be written on it and hung on a banner in the hallways outside the media center. A limited number of T-shirts will be available and pre-ordering your size is encouraged. The deadline for pre-ordered T-shirts is Tuesday, September 18th. T-shirts and pink cancer ribbons will be sold in the JCHS cafeteria Tuesday, September 25th through Wednesday, October 3.
Wear your Pink T-shirt to school on Wednesday, October 3rd
Attend the PINK OUT Football Game on Friday, October 5th at 7p.m. The Gladiators take on Pope High School. There will be a be a silent auction and raffle items at the PINK OUT game to benefit The Karen Wellington Foundation. Winners will be announced throughout the game. In addition, the cheerleaders will conduct a moving ceremony at halftime supporting the fighters, admiring the survivors and honoring those taken by cancer in our JCHS family and community.
