Marymount Regals Think Pink

Marymount students Charlotte Roy (Grade 12), Kelly Carmichael (Grade 12), Samantha Shewring (Grade 12) and Meghan Miller (Grade 9) model the t-shirts that the Marymount Catholic Charities Council is selling to raise funds for breast cancer research.

April 7, 2010 - One of the student organizations at Marymount Academy called the Marymount Catholic Charities Council or MC3, has decided that one of their student run initiatives this spring would focus on raising funds for Breast Cancer research. This group of students has organized different events that the school would focus on for the month of April that would support this cause. Charlotte Roy, President of MC3 said that the council came up with the idea together and felt that being a part of an all-girl school, it was definitely an issue that was important to them. Samantha Shewring, a Grade 12 student and member of the Council said that most of the girls at the school know at least one person who has been affected by breast cancer. “It is definitely something that the students at Marymount can relate to.” said Shewring. “We need to do all that we can to support breast cancer research because it could affect anyone of us in the future!” The students have arranged for several different fund-raising events including “t-shirt” Wednesdays, Sumo wrestling, and “Pink Smoothie” Days. All monies raised will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
