Glenholme Girls Pledge to do Their Part

Breast cancer has touched the lives of nearly everyone across our Nation and around the world. During National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Glenholme students honor those we have lost, lend their strength to those who carry on the fight, and strive to educate those around them about this tragic disease.
Clad in shades of pink, the female students of Rose Court, G2, and Vanholme hosted their second Breast Cancer Awareness fundraiser on Monday, October 22, 2012 in the Glenholme gymnasium. They collected donations at the door and inside they sold freshly baked goods, homemade bracelets, and bookmarks, and led the students and staff in limbo and other group games. During a brief pause in the student DJed music, three of the girls gave profound speeches in which they thanked everyone for their support, explained the history of the Susan G. Komen foundation, and pledged to do their part to help end cancer.

From campus fundraisers and clean-ups to nursing home visits and environmental efforts, Glenholme’s philanthropic and community service efforts have a positive effect on the community as a whole. By giving to others, students give to themselves: they overcome obstacles, gain new perspectives, develop a sense of personal achievement, and practice positive values that promote good decision making.

Inspired by the resilience of those around them who continue their battle with breast cancer, the female students of Glenholme demonstrated their commitment to continuing their efforts to fight for a cure. This year their Breast Cancer Awareness event raised over $1,150 for the Susan G. Komen foundation. All the students involved exemplify the Glenholme character values of kindness, caring and community service. The entire Glenholme community commends them for their thoughtfulness, compassion, and dedication.
