Sarah Smith Elementary raises money for breast cancer survivors

The Sarah Smith Elementary School community raised more than $6,000 and registered more than 400 walkers for its inaugural 2-mile walk for breast cancer!

“This was an amazing and authentic expression of outreach, awareness and action on behalf of our school community,” said walk organizers Bejay Osby and Stephanie Wilkinson. “The walk allowed our united community to truly make a difference. We were deeply moved and inspired by the experience and we hope others were too.”

On Nov. 6, nearly 400 students, faculty, parents and neighbors walked 2 miles to support breast cancer awareness. This IB awareness and action plan was rooted in the PYP Learner Profile focusing on “caring” and “empathy.” The experience empowered children and encouraged them to contribute to their local community regarding a global epidemic.

Proceeds were donated on behalf of Sarah Smith Elementary to the Atlanta-area breast cancer organization It’s The Journey, Inc. It’s The Journey and the Atlanta 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer generates funding for multiple local programs that help provide financial assistance, education, diagnosis, treatment and more.
