Like a few of the other top fundraising schools, Newfane Middle School also held their first Bald for Bucks event this year. They set a goal of raising $1,000 for cancer cures and ended up raising an outstanding $23,431.90!
Fifty of Newfane Middle School’s students and teachers participated in their event and many members of the community showed up to cheer them on. On the day of the event, each grade dressed up in a different color to increase participation and awareness for the cause.
To highlight the impact of the funds raised, the school invited Survivor Squad member Cat to speak before the cutting and shaving began. Cat told students about her cancer diagnosis and how it changed her perspective on life. “I’ve really taken the time to think about what makes me happy,” she said.
We look forward to seeing what Newfane Middle can do in the future!
