As students walked off their busses today, they weren't in for an average morning at General Mclane High School.
Today the Lancers painted the school pink to help raise funds for breast cancer research.
Students danced, painted their hair, those without hair got creative. All in response to recent teachers diagnoses of cancer.
"We've had some teachers that have been stricken with breast cancer and lots of families"
Today was about a school coming together to support one another.
The idea started when Marla Stauffer, a teacher at General Mclane, asked her hair dresser for ideas to raise awareness.
David and Alta beauty salon responded with an idea and donation of pink hair products to give students something a little different to do.
"paint the whole school pink, their hair, glitter, beads bracelets, anything"
"the music played and the students danced in the hall ways to today, all part of paint your school pink at general mclain high school this afternoon. My friend Maria is going to help me out with a painted on breast cancer awareness ribbon. You could do that or vet your hair painted for free today or donate 5 dollars and get a necklace or wrist band. Students are encouraged to do that and come out tonight for the women's basketball game. To show off your pink work."
Junior student Mallory volunteered today because she says she recognizes the importance of this event.
"everyone's effected by it at some point in their life. We just happen to have a very important teacher to us. It's important for people of all ages. "
Future students, current faculty, even pets all joined in the cause to find a cure.
To make sure that anyone diagnosed in the future, can keep on dancing.
