PHOTOS: Assumption School students go pink for breast cancer awareness in Ansonia



ANSONIA >> Students at Assumption School went pink Friday, Oct. 24, in support of national Breast Cancer Month, and also raised funds for the cause.

Students Brooke Armistead, a 7th grader, and Alexa Benfanti, an 8th grader, designed a T-shirt, raising awareness for the cause. The girls raised $625 from T-shirt sales, and presented a check to Griffin Hospital's Hewitt Center for Breast Health. The two girls presented Janet Hall from Griffin's development office with the check during a brief ceremony at the school Friday.

During the school's morning prayer service, students and staff formed a huge, human pink cross.
