Senior Claudia Moore helps raise money during lunch for breast cancer patients.

Even though the Senior Class won the coin drive, the real winner was breast cancer research.

The National Honor Society’s fundraiser ended Friday, Oct. 26, with $79.55 being raised.

Since the Senior Class raised the most amount, each senior will receive a free pass to any sporting event.

Senior Claudia Moore, vice president of NHS, helped out with the coin drive.

“I think that it’s a good fundraiser because it gets kids involved to help out with people in need,” Moore said.

Mrs. Colleen Grathoff, NHS adviser, put on the coin drive to bring awareness to Kearsley students.

“We put this on because it’s breast cancer awareness month,” Mrs. Grathoff said. “We wanted to join it into the Kearsley community to bring awareness.”

The funds raised by the coin drive will be used to help those with breast cancer.

According to breastcancer.org, breast cancer affects about one in eight U.S. women through their lifetime. That’s about 12.4 percent of women in the United States.

Students helped in raising money for these women.
