High school raises money for breast cancer awareness

Covington High School in Louisiana, had its most successful breast cancer awareness month throughout October, as a number of clubs joined together, according to The Times-Picayune.

"It was really awesome how the clubs came together to support such a great cause," Key Club president Zack Kidder, told the news source. "We managed to do a lot and raise a lot of money. The best part is that the money is going to help people from around here."

The club bagged groceries for tips at Winn-Dixie earlier in the month and sold breast cancer awareness ribbons and temporary tattoos. All of the funds raised went to breast cancer research, the media outlet reports.

According to the American Cancer Society, one in eight women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point during her lifetime. It is the second leading cause of cancer-related death among women behind lung cancer, and the disease is the second most common form of cancer in women, following only skin cancer.
