Toledo Public Schools went pink Friday for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
It started with an email to teachers and staff, asking that everyone wear pink. It quickly grew beyond just the staff.
TPS says its students always come dressed for success, but on Oct. 11, they put on a little extra pink to raise awareness for breast cancer.
"They were all excited when they came in the morning," said Yvonne Tiller, from Glenwood Elementary. "They were excited that they were able to do it and wear the pink. Even the boys came in [saying], ‘Look, I have my pink on today.'"
For some it was a shirt, others a peek of pink on their socks or in their hair. Photos flooded the district's Facebook page.
"The earlier our kids find out about stuff like this and get involved in things like this, and learn how to get out into the community, and how to support, they will become more involved," said Sherri Moton, from Glenwood.
Cancer has touched the lives of virtually everyone in the district, either directly or indirectly, including a teacher at Navarre, who is a breast cancer survivor. Her TPS family had a special message of encouragement for her.
Although Breast Cancer Awareness Month is just one out of 12, the district says the message of hope lives every day in the children they teach.
"Who knows? [It] might be one of our kids who actually might be the one who finds the cure," said Moton.
