CHS Raises Money for Staff & Students Personally Battling Cancer
Attention CHS - IT'S ZUAC time! Zebras United Against Cancer was created to help OUR ZEBRA FAMILY as they are personally affected by the hardships of cancer. Each year we kick it off with the sale of our ZUAC shirts for PINK OUT followed by each organization and team contributing through their individual fundraising efforts.
Over the past 3 years, we have helped teachers & students from CHS, WRJH, Westside, and Roosa as personally battled this disease. We still have teachers and students in our district that are actively in treatment.
Did you know a single chemo treatment costs over $15,000? Most patients have at least 4 rounds of chemo; one of our teachers had to 17 treatments. Radiation, PET Scans, MRIs, bloods testing and even surgery are all very familiar to a cancer patient.
Although the shirts are PINK we want to recognize that not all cancer is pink! We have supported those with lymphoma, leukemia, prostate, brain, & breast cancers. This year's t-shirt brings attention to those cancers, as well.
ZUAC is our school-wide service project and our opportunity to make a difference in the lives of our ZEBRA Family! T-SHIRTS are on sale NOW & the largest part of our fundraising efforts. Over the past 3 years we've been able to donate over $13,000 to the cause.
Our first round of orders will be in by October 25th.
Our second round of orders are currently being taken until October 31st. Every sport will have a ZUAC night you can wear them to and in February we will host our ZUAC week.
