Watervliet City Schools was one of many districts and businesses throughout the Capital Region to take part in the Real Kids Wear Pink campaign that benefits the American Cancer Society.
Our WES Student Ambassadors, with the assistance of advisers, organized the district’s “Real Kids Wear Pink” Day on Friday, October 21. Students and staff at Watervliet Elementary School and Watervliet Jr.-Sr. High School dressed in pink to show their support and collected nearly $600 between the two buildings for the American Cancer Society.
The Real Kids Wear Pink campaign was initiated locally by a student in the neighboring Cohoes City School District. This annual event has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the American Cancer Society since its inception.
Way to go ‘Vliet Schools!
