This week, Reeves College’s Lethbridge campus participated in the 17th annual Dress for the Cause fundraising event to help promote awareness for breast cancer. Hosted by the Breast Cancer Society of Canada, Dress for the Cause, formerly known as Dress Down Day, encourages participants to wear pink to help raise awareness to the illness.

According to the Breast Cancer Society of Canada, approximately one in nine women will develop breast cancer and an average of fourteen women die from it each day. But this does not only affect women. While this is still a rare disease for men, amounting to less than 1% of all reported cases, an average of one in four affected men die of breast cancer. Donations from fundraisers are allocated to multiple areas including research and clinical trials to help develop new treatments and medication.

Reeves College is a strong supporter of the communities it lives and works in. Many staff and students at the Lethbridge campus eagerly dressed up in pink and donated to the worthy cause. Check out our Facebook page for pictures!
