Guthrie High School students will participate in Pink Week, a week of fun events aimed at raising money and awareness for cancer care, October 8th-12th. From dress up days and special assemblies to a write-a-check campaign, students will collect money for a member of the GHS family battling cancer.
This year’s Pink Week beneficiary is Tara Lynn, a 1998 Guthrie graduate, wife to Eddie Lynn, and mother to five children who all attend Guthrie Public Schools. Diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2016, Lynn went into remission last year after radiation and chemotherapy treatments. Now, she is fighting metastatic cervical cancer for the second time and is currently receiving treatment from National Cancer Institution in Maryland.
“Our goal is to raise $6,000,” said Student Council member Lilli Goode.
Any donations are greatly appreciated and can be dropped off at the high school office with checks made out to Guthrie Student Council.
Students will hold two assemblies to kickoff and close the week of fund raising revelry. The first one is Monday, October 8 at 11:18 a.m. and the second is at the same time on October 15.
On Monday the dress up day theme is Country Vs. Country Club. All grades wear different colors on Tuesday-- freshman in purple, sophomores wear red, juniors sport green, and seniors will wear blue. For Wednesday students will dress up with a generations theme: Freshman dress as babies, sophomores dress as kids, juniors are adults, and seniors are senior citizens. Nerds battle Jocks on Thursday with everyone wearing Pink Week shirts on Friday.
