Auburndale raises money for breast cancer awareness

Posted:
AUBURNDALE (WAOW) -

Some central Wisconsin high school students are helping in the fight against breast cancer.

Auburndale High School's student council worked to raise money for the Central Wisconsin Susan G. Komen Foundation. They presented the foundation with a check for $1,500 Thursday.

Students said they chose to support breast cancer awareness because the disease affects one out of every eight women.

Students sold shirts and held a raffle to raise money for the cause.

"It was great to see so many people come together and donate so much and wear the shirts, and for our first year, that was really great to see," said Mikayla Jankowski, Auburndale High School student council president.

Newsline 9 is a proud sponsor of the Central Wisconsin Susan G. Komen Foundation.
