It is October, and the Belmontian Club has been planning for Breast Cancer month at BHS. As a first step (no pun intended!), many of us are walking in Making Strides Against Breast Cancer on Sunday, October 5, where representatives from the club will be on the stage at the Hatch Shell in recognition of our third-place finish in last year’s High School Challenge. If you would like to support the team (and the American Cancer Society’s efforts in breast cancer research, education, treatment, and patient support), we’d be delighted to accept your donations. You may make contributions online by going to our team website: http://main.acsevents.org/goto/belmonths and clicking on “Donate Now” or by sending a check, made out to the American Cancer Society, to Alice Melnikoff, Belmont High School, 221 Concord Avenue, Belmont, MA 02478. We can collect donations throughout October and November. Last year, from all of our breast cancer fundraising activities, we raised $15,000, and we are hoping to exceed that this year. We will keep you up to date on the many events we are planning for this year.
Thank you for all your support!
