My friend also helped me design a new pink t-shirt to sell to our school community. I also ordered various pink merchandise. When the event day finally arrived, we were able to sell all the pink merchandise we had prepared!”

I learned that I can run an event by myself. I was unsure that I could get everything done in time, didn’t think I could raise any money, and I was afraid of hearing no. I kept pushing through because I knew the money goes to an amazing cause. Knowing that I could help at least one person go through this awful disease is what motivated me to continue.”
