APS Students Wear Pink, Raise Money During Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Many student athletes and others wear pink shirts, socks and other attire in support of survivors and in honor of those who have lost their battle.
Breast cancer touches the lives of many of our students, including Eldorado senior Aidan Yeomans and his brother, sophomore Griffin, whose mother, Becky, is battling the disease. Becky was recognized by the brothers’ soccer team at their game last week against district rivals Sandia. But it wasn’t just the Eagles who donned pink t-shirts in tribute to breast cancer survivors and in memory of those who’ve lost their battle. The Matadors stripped off their white jerseys and changed into pink garb as well just before the game in honor of the many moms, sisters, teachers, aunts and friends who have fought the disease.
Teams across APS wear pink during Breast Cancer Awareness Month and many students and schools participate in fundraisers and awareness campaigns throughout the month in hopes that someday a cure will be found.
