Tuxedo Park School faculty and staff donned pink on Oct. 24 to honor breast cancer survivors and raise awareness about how to reduce the risk of breast cancer. Students discussed how one of the best weapons is early detection. Pink serves as a reminder of this. To empower the students to feel capable of affecting change, school officials invited the young people to replace one of their regular uniform items with something pink. “Each pink sweater, shirt, tie, headband, skirt or sock sends a message,” school officials said in their press release announcing the effort, “a message that we care, a message of the importance of early detection, a message of support and a message of the power of young people to be agent of change. All it takes is a little pink.”
