MCPS Breast Cancer Awareness Events

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  One in eight women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.  It is the second leading cause of cancer death among women.  Breast cancer effects us all – our mothers, sisters, daughters, wives, aunts, grandmothers, etc.  The MCPS family is passionate about helping those who have been affected by breast cancer.  So in true Mountaineer fashion, we will hold several awareness and fundraising events across the division with proceeds benefiting the UVA Cancer Center’s Breast Care Program.  Join the movement.

Mark your calendars for these MCPS PINK events:


Tuesday, October 11 at 6:00  Annual PINK Out Breast Cancer Awareness Volleyball Game –  Come on out, wear PINK and support your Lady Mountaineers as they play Strasburg.  Breast Cancer survivors will be celebrated on the court.  There will be numerous fundraising activities at the game such as a raffle auction where you can pay $1.00 per ticket and enter as many tickets as you like for a chance to win some really great merchandise and services that local businesses so graciously donated.  There will be cupcakes for sale and a 50/50 raffle.  All proceeds will go to the UVA Cancer Center’s Breast Care Program.


Wednesday October 26 Wetsel Middle School SCA will be selling PINK ribbons all month with proceeds donated to the UVA Cancer Center’s Breast Care Program at the end of the month.  On October 26th, with the student body dressed in PINK, WMS will hold an assembly/pep rally in the gym and have a representative from UVA come out and accept the check.


Friday, October 28 at 7:30 Annual Breast Cancer Awareness Football Game –  Come on out and support Breast Cancer Awareness and our Mountaineers as they face off against George Mason.  There will be stocking caps for sale with the MC logo and PINK ribbon on the front.  Proceeds from the sale will go to the UVA Cancer Center’s Breast Care Program.  There will be FREE PINK cotton candy for anyone wearing PINK.
