October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

What you can you do to raise awareness about breast cancer in our community?

Since its inception in 1985, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month has been a leader in supporting national and local discussions on issues related to prevention and treatment of breast cancer in the U.S.  SkyWell has joined that discussion, by planning a fundraiser/Flag Football Tournament to promote wellness and physical activity, with proceeds to be donated to our local cancer care organizations. In addition, Skyline High School will join Ann Arbor Pioneer with a PinkOut at our October football game.

SkyWell Flag Football Event Details:
  • Sign Up Starts on Friday, October 16th 
  • Date of Event: Sunday, October 25th 
  • $20 team fee
  • Teams of 7-10 people
  • 2 girls must always be on the field 
  • 11AM start

Major advancements have been made in breast cancer awareness and treatment in the past ten years. But with your involvement and support, much more can be accomplished.

This month, take a moment to think about what you can do to raise awareness at our school and in our community. Although October is designated as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, many committed individuals and organizations sponsor events throughout the year.
Join us for our planning meeting at the SkyWell Club on Monday, October 12th, right after school, in suite #408.
