If you’ve attended a Komen Columbus Race for the Cure in the past few years, you might have noticed a group of students, dressed in pink from head to toe, helping to organize participants at the busy start line area. These students were part of the Hamilton Township High School Team and in addition to supplying more than 200
volunteers to help with Race day activities, the team also easily won the High School Team Challenge Award, bringing 816 members to the Race.
This year Hamilton Township High School students went above and beyond and came up with a dance for all survivors to do at the close of the 2010 Survivor Ceremony. (Check out the end of this video to see the dancers in action.)
Not only are the students active during Race season, but the Volley for the Cure match they host every year is one to be rivaled as we outlined in a previous post.
This year’s Volley for the Cure game was held on Wednesday, September 15, and if you were any where near Hamilton Township that night, you might have seen a few pink people around.
We’re so grateful to the students and Volleyball Coach (as well as team captain) Carole Morbitzer for putting on such a show in
support of breast cancer awareness. Proceeds from the event are still being collected thanks to some very successful fundraisers the school hosted (not to mention the community’s support!) and we can’t wait to put the students’ hard-earned money to use to support local breast cancer education, treatment and screening programs.
