Area Girl Scouts or interested parties in grades 4-12 and moms are invited to participate in a Think Pink! event- a Girl Scout event that focuses on breast cancer awareness – Saturday, Oct. 9, from 1-4 p.m. (check in takes place from 12:30 – 12:50 p.m.) in the Merrill High School gymnasium. Participants should register by ??¢??????¨Oct. 1.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Girl Scouts has collaborated with Aspirus Women’s Health on a patch program for girls interested in learning about breast cancer awareness.
Girl Scouts will band together with the Aspirus Women’s Health Center to make a difference in the life of women during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Beginning with a one-mile awareness walk, girls will also check out women’s health booths, listen to a Cancer Survivor Program, tour a Mobile Imaging Unit, and take action to lend support. Girls will design a quilt square for a Girl Scout quilt to be donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation and build a comfort kit to be donated to a Women’s Health Center in their city/town for cancer patients.
Wear your favorite pink clothing to show your support for the cause.
To register, call 888-747-6945, ext. 5018 and ask about Think Pink!, or visit www.gsnwgl.org. The first 50 girls to register will receive a Pink Promise Tote.
