Hubbard High School teacher Megan Schellhorn's organization, Pink Lights the Way, is set to illuminate Breast Cancer Awareness Month with a Cupcake Walk Fundraiser at Eastwood Field. On October 1, families are invited to join this community event. The gates will swing open at 12:30 p.m., and at 2 p.m., participants will embark on a symbolic walk that carries a message of hope and support. Pink Lights the Way, led by passionate breast cancer survivors, is more than just an organization; it's a community that offers personalized emotional and financial support to those currently in treatment. They provide comfort items and uplifting care packages, creating a network of strength and resilience. Visit pinklightstheway.org to register for the event or make a donation, and discover how you can join this compassionate community.
Schellhorn said, "When I look back at the last couple years, one of the most overwhelming emotions I experience is gratitude for this community during my breast cancer diagnosis and treatment. Our Hubbard staff, students, and families all showed up for me and my family in so many ways. If you have ever heard me speak at the various wonderful events you all held, one thing I always said was that I promise to somehow pay forward all the good you have done for me. It would be so meaningful to me to have your support and attendance at this event. You all are the reason this organization exists. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you did for me and for helping Pink Lights the Way to ensure that every woman has support during breast cancer treatment."
Then, on October 10, Hubbard High School students are coming together to organize a meaningful "Pink Out" volleyball game scheduled for 7 p.m. This event is not just about cheering for our school team; it's about rallying behind a vital cause. While ticket prices remain the same (Students - $5, Adults - $8), every dollar raised through other activities such as a Chinese auction and concessions, will make a difference in the lives of those battling breast cancer. All the proceeds from this event will be channeled towards Pink Lights The Way. If you have any questions or would like to get involved, you can reach out to Mrs. Schellhorn during 9th period. Your participation and support will truly make a meaningful difference in the lives of those in need.
