Pink doors, pink ribbons, pink T-shirts, pink bow-ties, pink cupcakes, pink lemonade, pink sponges, pink photobooth, pink putties… What in the world happened to Dulwich?
Well, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Last week, DCB’s student-led charity club, Interact, organized five days of wacky fun activities to promote awareness for the disease and to raise money for Wheels for Life, a charity initiated by the United Family Foundation that uses mobile clinics to provide children and women in rural Beijing with free check-ups.
It was amazing event, not only because it was for a worthy cause, but more importantly, because every group of the community was involved. Senior School Interact members took polaroid photos of Early Years and Junior School students holding pink balloons and wearing silly pink wigs. Junior School and Senior School students scavenged the school for pink balloons and savoured in the opportunity to throw pink wet sponges at their teachers. Teachers participated in the push-up competition against students and the Fitbit competition against their colleagues. Parents contributed to the fundraiser through Coffee & Books. Many members of the community had pink stickers, pins, bowties and shirts on them throughout the week. In total, the community raised 33,420 RMB. Thank you, students, parents and teachers! This week of pink would not have been possible without your support!
