Students and staff at the Governor Morehead School for the Blind held a “Pink Out,” in which students wore pink to raise awareness of breast cancer.

Students tie-dyed their own T-shirts and wore them throughout the day on Oct.1. Parents, teachers and staff were also encouraged to wear pink in honor of the day.

The students also designed a recognition wall to honor family and friends of GMS students and staff affected by the disease, and organized a pink lemonade and snack sale.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The event raised $313.50, which was donated to the Pretty In Pink Foundation.
