BISD Hope Strong for a Cure
Each day, 36 children are diagnosed with cancer in the U.S. and 7 children will lose that battle. September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, a time to honor and remember children and families affected by the many diseases of cancer. It’s also a time to rally support to give hope to cancer-stricken kids by supporting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and their groundbreaking research. Each year in September, Bastrop ISD comes together as a district, along with our community, to raise money for St. Jude, whose treatments have increased childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to 80%. This is why Bastrop ISD has committed to doing our part to end childhood cancer.
To date, BISD has raised $82,736.60 for St. Jude! Event co-founder Dawn Vinklarek says, "All of this would not possible without the help of amazing liaisons at each campus who run their Hope Strong shirt sales and donation drives. The community businesses and schools who help sponsor the shirt production are also extremely valuable to us! We hope to hit the $100K mark this year, and with your help, it can happen!"
Contact a campus liaison to place an order for your shirt and mark your calendars for the GOLD OUT game where BHS & CCHS will battle it out on the football field and at the same time, come together to show that we truly are HOPE STRONG!
