The BHS Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Team: The Final Accounting

 As you may remember, the Belmontian Club provided energy and leadership in many October activities to support the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.  Members of the club and the cheerleaders walked in Making Strides,  the members  designed and sold “Dare to Cure” t-shirts, held a “pink out” at school and at a soaker of a football game, approached  Belmont merchants , some of whom donated door prizes for the pink out, while others scheduled a day in which they donated a portion of their earnings to our Making Strides team,  partnered  with Belmont Car Wash in a charity car wash , collected funds from Shaw’s, and went trick-or-treating for Breast Cancer  on Halloween.  In short,  the club brought together many segments of our community with spectacular success. 

It is with great delight and pride that I share with you the news I received this week from the American Cancer Society:  Our final fundraising total is $13,301–beyond our wildest dreams, AND

the Belmont High School Team has earned second place in the 2012 High School Challenge.

With thanks to everyone who worked, fundraised, contributed, and supported our efforts.

See you in October!
