St. Catherine’s Academy (SCA) in Anaheim, CA will show their support for breast cancer and all cancers throughout the month of October.

The academy will take part in selling pink bracelets and pink ribbon pins to raise funds to benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation. SCA students and staff will also pay special homage to those affected by breast cancer and all cancers at their varsity football game on Wednesday, October 27 from 3:30-4:30 p.m.

St. Catherine’s Academy (SCA) is an all-boys’ Catholic school with a military tradition and the oldest elementary school in Orange County. Every October, for the past 5 years, students have showcased their fellowship and ministry towards this noble cause. The school inspires students to talk to their mothers and all-important women in their life about taking care of their health through the cancer awareness October campaign.

“As a school community, we are proud to support breast cancer awareness and research,” said Sister Johnellen Turner, Principal/Administrator. “We will continue to pray for a cure and do our best to support breast cancer awareness and research.”

St. Catherine’s Academy selected the Susan G. Komen Foundation for its mission in fighting breast cancer by advancing research, education, screening, and treatment. According to the statistics, 1 in 8 U.S. women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.

If you are interested in supporting SCA’s effort by purchasing a bracelet or pin, or if you would like to donate, please call or 714-772-1363 or visit www.stcatherinesacademy.org.
