¬†¬†¬†Students from the Shelby County College and Career Center “Pinked Out” their campus on October 28 in order to raise money and awareness for breast cancer research.¬† This was the fourth year for the event, which is sponsored by the Student Government Assocation.¬† Advisor Kim Estill said the event was expected to raise more than $1,000 for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure fundraiser.¬†Students raised money by purchasing t-shirts for the event,¬†“pink” goodies from the Culinary Department,¬†pink face paint or nails from Cosmetology, or¬†by paying $1 to participate in various games and activities.¬†And while the students participating in the event had a good time, they¬†remember that it is a very serious topic.¬† The Health Care Science class hosted an informational booth about the the importance of early detection and self exams.¬† Students also decorated the hallways with pink ribbons with the names of family members or friends who have been impacted by the disease.
