Students and staff from J.W. Dodd Middle School participated in several efforts to honor National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. For Breast Cancer Awareness Day and National Mammogram Day, students and staff wore pink and the Ladies of Dodd researched Breast Cancer Awareness statistics and posted them around the school. They also provided students and faculty alike with pink ribbons, pink pens and pink lollipops. With that, the young ladies went into homerooms and shared these facts with their classmates.

Additionally, students and staff took their efforts outside the school by participating in a five-mile walk at Jones Beach. The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk is a powerful and inspiring opportunity to honor breast cancer survivors and raise awareness about the steps that can be made to reduce the risk of getting breast cancer. Through their efforts, Dodd staff and students raised more than $1,600 for the cause.
