Since we started this annual event we have raise $1390 for the American Cancer Society! We are excited to take part and to continue this annual fundraiser as breast cancer awareness is so important being that breast cancer can happen to our loved ones or any of us. This year all of the money raised will be going to the Friends of the Helen F. Graham Cancer Center. Those who wish to participate can donate $10 to wear Jeans and something Pink on Friday October 12th 2018 to work.
History Of Denim Day
Since Denim Days began in 1996, participants have raised more than $97 million to help save lives from breast cancer. Denim Days began with a simple concept – if each of us takes a small step to help eliminate breast cancer, collectively, those steps will take us far in achieving our goal. Employees at a private company got together to ask coworkers for donations to “go casual” for the cause. And what’s more casual than denim? The idea spread, and now companies, schools, and other organizations nationwide have participated in raising funds and awareness to support our programs and services that help those with breast cancer, and also to help others avoid a diagnosis altogether.
