Ovarian Cancer Awareness
LAUREL AUTO GROUP Charity Golf Classic
Bishop McCort Catholic High School has once again teamed up with the Laurel Auto Group to recognize September as Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. To kick off the campaign, BMCHS students along with adult volunteers and local businesses worked together to tie numerous ribbons and place many yard signs throughout Greater Johnstown, Windber, Somerset, and Ebensburg. Their efforts have definitely “Turned the Towns Teal” to raise awareness of ovarian cancer and its symptoms.
Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month will be a busy one for McCort students with activities scheduled throughout the month. School administration uses time during daily announcements on “Teal Tuesdays” to educate students about the disease’s silent symptoms and importance of early detection. Thanks to Laurel Auto Group, all students will have teal t-shirts to commemorate the month and to wear to support the spirit of awareness. Students will wear their shirts for a dress down day.
“Teal Out” sporting events were scheduled for this week. The girls volleyball team held a teal game on Tuesday and the boys’ soccer team encouraged their fans on Thursday to wear teal to raise awareness. Tonight’s football game versus Somerset Area will feature students wearing teal and spectators can get in the spirit of the evening by coming dressed in teal. Laurel Auto will be sending down their teal Toyota Corolla as part of the awareness activities. Teal surprises and giveaways will await everyone coming to the game!!! Because there is no early detection test for ovarian cancer, it is imperative that women be aware of the symptoms of the disease.
