October was Breast Cancer Awareness month and MEMS's NJHS, with the help of the students, teachers, staff, and the MEMS Boosters went completely pink! Our school came together to purchase "MEMS Students Fighting Cancer" towels and bracelets, participated in a teacher silent auction and student raffle, and compete in a school-wide "Pink Out" day. All of our efforts culminated with an "Answer to Cancer: Walk-a-Thon" on November 1st.
Overall, MEMS raised $5025 throughout the month of October. This money will be donated to Monmouth Medical Center.
