The National Mall will be flooded with pink on Saturday for the Susan G. Komen Global Race for the Cure, and some special students were recognized for their efforts this morning on Good Morning Washington. Kids of all ages from Green Acres School in North Bethesda, MD chatted about their efforts and success with the Race for the Cure while showing off their forecasting skills. These kids along with 23 other schools helped raise $17K!
The School Spirit Challenge was a throw down to public and private K-12 schools in the Washington metropolitan area to create a team for the 2013 Global Race for the Cure. The Challenge was a strategy to grow K-12 academic teams to make for an unforgettable Race Day experience, and empower our kids to make a difference in their community. School team participation is a community commitment to:
· Raising awareness about breast cancer throughout the school community;
· Celebrating anyone in a school’s community who is or has battled breast cancer
· Helping students, faculty, and families learn, understand and overcome fears about breast cancer and its treatment; and
· Promoting this global outreach effort to end breast cancer as a life-threatening disease.
Check out energetic crowd and how much fun we had together in the clips below as we chat about the Challenge and the forecast.
