On Tuesday, Oct. 17, 2017, Watertown High School had Think Pink Day. This was done in order to spread awareness for breast cancer. Think Pink shirts were sold for $10 and pink bracelets sold $2.

According to Natalie Finton, a freshman on the Pride Committee, all proceeds went to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, the Boston research center that is searching for a cure to cancer.

Pink and white streamers and balloons filled the halls of Watertown High School for Think Pink Day on Oct. 17, 2017.

Students wore pink to show support, while the whole school was decorated in pink and white balloons along with streamers.

The Pride Committee put in a lot of effort to decorate the school before students came in that morning. The Pride Committee spread knowledge about the day. Posters with information about breast cancer were hung all around the school to raise awareness and give facts about how breast cancer affects people.

The Think Pink day takes place in October as part of Breast Cancer Awareness month.

On Monday, Nov. 6, members of the Pride Committee, along with WHS teachers David Mastro and Adam Joyce, presented a check to Dana-Farber for $3,364.
