Yasmine Guedalia and Sami Rosen, both 11th graders at Solomon Schechter School of Westchester, walk the halls of the high school in Hartsdale Jan 6, 2010.
The students were instrumental in planning an event called Pink Day. The event brought together the students, staff and school administrators, raising awareness towards breast cancer. In addition to the hallways and stairwells being decorated with pink ribbons and streamers, a guest speaker spoke to the students, as well as education about breast cancer incorporated in lessons taught in each class room. Guedalia and Rosen’s goal was to raise $1,000 through fundraiser sell of T-shirts and bracelets, with all the proceeds being donated to the National Breast Cancer Society.
