High school students across the greater Racine area are asking the community to support their cancer awareness programs this month by wearing shirts that coordinate with the designated day:

“Our awesome Youth Engagement Representatives from each Racine High School have planned a 2-week Cancer Awareness Program that will be taking place at each school,” said Amy Helvick, Relay for Life of Racine – Event Lead, wrote in a message on the RCE Facebook page. “We are very excited about this and would love for everyone in Racine to get involved! Wear these colors on the designated day to help spread awareness.”
