Fruita 8/9 students thinking pink

By  | 

FRUITA, Colo. (KKCO) Pink is the most popular clothing color found in the hallways of Fruita 8/9, or at least it seemed that way Friday.

The school's Student Senate put together a "Think Pink" day to encourage students and faculty to wear the color in support of breast cancer.

Besides sporting pink, students could contribute to the cause by getting pink hair extensions, filling a pink bucket with pennies and purchasing small pink flags to write messages on in support or memory of people battling cancer.

"If students know of breast cancer, then in the future we can try to find a cure for it and try to have fundraisers to help," said Bradyn Heit, a member of Student Senate.

The Delaney Donates pink fire truck stopped by for students to sign for loved ones battling cancer.

"Maybe if they’re in heaven or something, maybe they can look down and see that we’re remembering them," Heit said.

Student senate members also sold pink t-shirts to give Delaney Donates some extra money.
