Each October, ICS is proud to support the community’s efforts in spreading Breast Cancer Awareness. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness, Lavelle Prep and New Ventures participated in the Making Strides of Staten Island Breast Cancer Walk on Sunday, October 15th.
Lavelle’s event organizer teacher Amy Byrne reflected, “In a joint effort between Lavelle Prep and New Ventures, about 30 students, 10 family members and 15 staff walked,” while also noting a number of students volunteered their time to the American Cancer Society by helping set up for, and assist with the event as well.
In the school’s five years of walking, we have raised approximately $400, not including walk sponsorships and day-of donations.
Additionally, Lavelle Prep teachers participated in the 8th Annual Women & Girls 9-11 Flag Football Games to Help Fight Breast Cancer on October 28th., hosted by the New York Women’s Athletic League. Teachers practiced and participated in the day’s events, winning their charity game while raising money for breast Cancer support and research. All proceeds from the event were donated to Avon Walk for Breast Cancer.
