High School Students Raise $10,000 for Breast Cancer Awareness

Boca Raton High School’s third annual “Shoot for the Cure” preseason tournament was held October 29at Boca High’s soccer stadium.

Schools that participated were Boca High, West Boca, Stoneman Douglas, and The Kings Academy.

All the proceeds of admission and concessions sales were donated to the Boca Raton Regional’s Go Pink Campaign. T-Shirts were also sold at the game to promote Breast Cancer Awareness and also to raise funds.

All the money given to the “Go Pink” Campaign are being used specifically to provide mammograms to uninsured and underserved women in the community. A total of $10,000 was donated.

The tournament was sponsored by the Rotary Club of Boca Raton. A total of 880 shirts were sold in two campuses (750 shirts at Boca High, and 130 shirts at West Boca High).

The Boca High had 7 groups on campus that were also shirt sponsors – Interact Club, NJROTC, Girls Volleyball Team, Bobcat Football, PAW Yearbook Staff, Swim and Dive Team, and the B.A.S.E Club.

The students and faculty of Boca High wore their “Shoot for the Cure” t-shirts and other pink items on Thursday, October 27th to show support for all those affected by Breast Cancer.

Here are some of the students that helped with the project:
