“Fun”-raise. Host a “Bandana Day” at your School!
"Even though I would wear bandanas and hats to cover my dome, not everyone was well informed of my condition and I was humiliated and intimidated when I was asked to take off my hat because of school policy." – Alicia, 2002
After Alicia lost her battle with cancer, her friends decided that students needed to raise awareness about the struggles that teen cancer patients face. Your classroom, school or school club, can be part of a national movement for teens with cancer to raise awareness. By hosting a Bandana Day at your school, students choose a colorful, fun bandana or a Bandana Band to wear on one day. Proceeds from these events support Teen Kits and Activities for hospitalized teens. You can even personalize your event by having it in memory of someone you know who has battled cancer, or another illness, and reigns as a local role model. What better way for your school to “show their colors” for friends or family members that cannot attend school with their peers?
