Race For A Cure


Santaluces students attended a breast cancer walk to support the spread of concern throughout the community.

This past Saturday, fellow chiefs went to the Race for the Cure in Clematis to support the ones who had won, lost, or are still fighting breast cancer. The Race for the Cure helps raise awareness  to find a cure to stop this disease.  Everyone who attends the race walks or runs to help raise money. The weather was beautiful and many people were there dressed in pink to support the cause.

Students such as Alicia Newby and Carolee Campos spent their Saturday morning racing for a cure.

“It was a great day,” said Newby. “We were walking around supporting one of our family’s close friends who had passed away from this disease.”

There were also vendors and people dressed in tutus or elaborate costumes like Darth Vader with pink ribbons attached in support of the pink ribbon.

When I walked that day it was wonderful to see all the brightly lit smiles from everyone attending the event. Helping to raise awareness, especially for my grandmother who is currently ill with this disease, was gratifying. I wanted to help so we can find a cure soon and stop the death of loved ones.
