Funds raised to support breast cancer research
On Tuesday, Oct.16, two area high schools' regularly scheduled swim meet became extra special. About 75 swimmers from University High School and DeLand High School put on pink swimsuits to honor breast cancer survivors and raise funds for the Florida Hospital DeLand Cancer Resource Center, which provides local women with prosthetic devices following breast surgery, as well as wigs and other cancer resources.
Even though the swimmers from DeLand High School won the meet, the real winners are local women who depend on those free services at the Florida Hospital DeLand Cancer Resource Center. The swimmers, ranging between ninth and 12th grade, raised $1,000 by selling breast cancer awareness T-shirts and snacks, such as pink cupcakes, at the Four Townes Family YMCA, 280 Wolf Pack Run in Deltona.
