Tusculum College and the Pioneer Pride Team are showing their support for the fight against breast cancer by wearing their jeans on Friday, October 2. With the support of President Nancy B. Moody, Tusculum College is participating in the Lee National Denim Day, and with just a $5 donation, any Tusculum College employee can buy the right to wear their jeans and support the fight against breast cancer.
One in every eight women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime - that’s one every three minutes! “Lee National Denim Day” is one of the largest single-day fundraisers for breast cancer. To help raise money to fight the disease, on Friday, October 2, millions of people nationwide will slip into their favorite jeans and make a $5 donation to support the Women’s Cancer Programs of Entertainment Industry Foundation, who are bringing together world-class scientists to develop an early detection blood test and working in Lee Labs nationwide to find less toxic, more effective treatments for breast cancer patients.
Tusculum College encourages support for this worthwhile cause and will allow those who wish to evidence their support to wear appropriate jeans to work that day as they get together with the Pioneer Pride team who have made the following request:
There’s something you can do to fight back against this disease, and I’m asking for your help.
