What do 200 students and faculty dressed in various shades of pink have in common?

They were all showing their support in bringing awareness to breast cancer.

On Wednesday, Oct. 24, Lake Park-Audubon FCCLA members Rilee Burnside and Lindsey Olson encouraged their peers and teachers to show their support for breast cancer awareness by wearing the color pink. In addition, the two student leaders researched breast cancer statistics and placed those facts in the daily student announcements for the week.

"It was really exciting to see all the support that our student body and faculty had in showing their pink pride," stated Rilee Burnside, co-chair of the service project.

Lindsey Olson added, "It was a challenge to select the top students and faculty to receive our 'best dressed' prizes since there were so many participants."

Burnside and Olson have planned a yearlong FCCLA (Family Career and Community Leaders of America) Chapter Service Project to help bring awareness and funding targeting breast cancer.
