The Power of Pink Auburn Adventist Academy Shows Its True Colors

Magenta, cherry, bubble-gum, and rose were just a few of the many shades of pink proudly worn on Oct. 25, 2007, at Auburn Adventist Academy. The sea of several hundred students made quite a spectacle as they passed each other in the halls, decked out in pink from head to toe.

In conjunction with the American Cancer Society (ACS), the freshman class asked the rest of the school to join with them to help support cancer research. The class also hosted a bake sale, raising about $300 for the ACS.

“Over 80 percent of the student body wore pink,” said Keith Hallam, Auburn Adventist Academy principal. “It not only allowed them to show support and unity for others, but it was a demonstration of the love that is in the hearts of our students. I believe that the students, parents and staff were greatly blessed.”

“I wore pink because I wanted to support cancer victims,” said Katie Herman, AAA freshman from Puyallup, Wash. “We not only raised money to help cure cancer, but it brought us together as a school. I think it is important for people to know that there is someone there to support you.”

The support of the students for their loved ones who are fighting cancer proved that the power of pink is paving the road for a rosy tomorrow.
