Students and staff support breast cancer awareness

Lower Macungie Middle School recently held its ninth annual Pink Out. Early in the school day, students gathered outside for an aerial photo in the shape of a flask, reflecting the theme Elements of a Cure.

The culmination of the Pink Out is the after school activity. Students dressed in everything pink – shirts, cowboy hats, bandanas, beads, shoelaces and more and enjoyed games, food, a DJ and a pink raffle. There was also a “Ballin’ for Breast Cancer” basketball tournament.
