DEWITT — St. Joseph Catholic School won third place in the Oct. 14-15 Wear Pink for the Cure challenge in DeWitt. More than 30 area business participated in the event, which aims to raise awareness of breast cancer.
Prior to the event, students created footprints and designed pink ribbons with prayers to decorate the school halls. At the judging assembly, students held signs that spelled the word “Hope,” prayed for those who have been affected by cancer and sang a blessing to the judges.
The prayer service was led by the school’s symbols of hope, who have been affected by cancer: Father Paul Connolly, parish pastor; Sister Janet Heiar, parish pastoral minister; teachers Loretta Pennock and Mary Mosier; and student Cole Westphal, who represented his mother, a cancer survivor.
Fifty dollars from student council funds, representing the five symbols of hope, was donated to the DeWitt Community Hospital Foundation.
St. Joseph’s received a trophy at an all-school assembly Oct. 23.
