The Guthrie High School Student Council announced their annual Pink Week fundraising campaign for this year. The events will happen September 23-27 throughout the Guthrie community with various activities to raise funds to fight cancer.
In honor of breast cancer awareness month in October, the fall fundraising focus is a family (or in this case families) which are a part of the Guthrie community and who are battling cancer or terminal disease. This year two Guthrie Public Schools staff members have been chosen: Mrs. Lisa Kroth and Mrs. Janetta Hibbler.
During the week of September 23rd to the 27th, student leaders will be out in the community and schools raising money to help these families in their struggle to fight cancer. Proceeds of this year’s fight will go directly to Mrs. Kroth, Mrs. Hibbler, and their families to help with their expenses.
The student council sponsors events and fund raising activities all week. The celebration comes to a close at the home football game against Piedmont on Friday night September 27. It has been a long running tradition to have “Pink Out” Night at Jelsma Stadium that night. The student council is asking all fans and families to sport your brightest shades of pink. Shirts are available through the school to help support the event.
“One of the goals of student council is not just to foster community at the high school, but across schools and into the community and you are a part of that. Thank you for your love and support of our students and our community,” said Justin Stevens, GHS Student Council Advisor.
