The Dallas High School Sports Marketing class, Leadership class, and Cheer Team have teamed up with the Susan G Komen Foundation to help spread awareness and support for breast cancer. Dallas High School has been selected among Willamette Valley schools to represent the Breast Cancer foundation this year.
As October is Breast Cancer awareness month, they are selling “Fight Like a Girl” shirts for students, staff and anyone else who would be willing to support this cause. It is also a great opportunity to come represent at our “Pink Out” games next month.
All proceeds will go to the Susan Komen foundation to help local breast cancer survivors and their battle.
In 1980, Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan, that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982, that promise became the Susan G. Komen organization and the beginning of a global movement. What was started with $200 and a shoebox full of potential donor names has now grown into the world’s largest nonprofit source of funding for the fight against breast cancer. To date, they have invested more than $2.9 billion in groundbreaking research, community health outreach, advocacy and programs in more than 60 countries. Their efforts helped reduce deaths from breast cancer by 38 percent between 1989 to 2014 and they won’t stop until their promise is fulfilled.
Susan G. Komen has transformed how the world treats and talks about this disease and have mobilized the largest and most passionate community. Since 1982, they have funded more than $988 million in research, more than $2.2 billion in education, screening, and treatment, serving millions worldwide.
The combination of science, education and direct help to people facing breast cancer has led to a 39 percent decline in mortality since 1989. Komen has funded more breast cancer research over their history than any other nonprofit to date. Komen focuses on supporting those with the fewest resources; uninsured, under-insured and low-income women and men unable to access care. Komen and grantees educate people about breast cancer where they live, work, play, and pray to empower them with information they need to make informed breast care decisions for themselves and as they advocate for others.
