On October 16, 2016 members of the Carle Place Key Club took part in the Breast Cancer Walk at Jones Beach. Students fundraised over $1,000. Students also held a breast cancer awareness day in school on October 15, 2016 in which the school wore a touch of pink, and ribbons were handed out by Key Club members.
The Breast Cancer Walk was a great experience. The Key Club was able to rally many members to attend to raise money for a great cause. It was so nice being able to go and walk for breast cancer awareness. It was a very positive environment filled with community spirit and positive attitudes. It was nice to see so many people from Long Island come together and everyone was so kind. Giving high fives to people you passed was a common gesture and put a smile on your face every time
The breast cancer walk has a positive vibe. People from all over are coming to together and raising over hundreds of thousands of dollars to fight against breast cancer. It's always good to see people coming together to create a positive impact.
