How One School is Using Jeans to Fight Breast Cancer
CONROE, Texas - Taking on an opponent as formidable as breast cancer is no easy task. So, the staff at Primrose School of Conroe decided to turn a spark of inspiration into flames of support through something found in every closet across America – blue jeans. We’ve all got a favorite pair. Maybe you’ve had them for years, and they’re perfectly broken in; maybe they fit so well it’s like they were tailored just for you. No matter why you love them, most of us would wear them everyday if we could. That’s what Primrose School of Conroe Jennifer Millington was banking on when she offered her staff a deal - pay $10 and wear blue jeans all week. Together, they’ve raised $500 and counting for iGoPink and The Breast Cancer Charities of America.
Breast cancer affects women (and men) from all walks of life. One in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime, and in 2017 more than 250,000 women are estimated to be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer, according to BreastCancer.Org
. The fight may seem daunting, but every dollar helps. From support resources including emergency bill assistance, beauty bags of hope and more to preventative educational materials, the funds raised at Primrose School of Conroe will go directly towards making a difference in the lives of those suffering with this life-altering disease.
The school will host a Pink Out day on Monday, November 30 as a wrap-up of their efforts in the fight against breast cancer. To learn more about how you can join Primrose in their efforts, contact PR Marketing, LLC.
