RVIS raises 500BD for Think Pink Bahrain

We had an exciting day on Tuesday, October 26th! In honor of International Breast Cancer Awareness Month, RVIS participated in multiple ways to help raise awareness in school. When students first entered school, they were given “Bee Aware” stickers, designed by senior Mariam Irhouma, which served to reflect the school's 4 B's, and add another, special “B” in honor of “bee-ing aware” of breast cancer. In addition, students were given pink masks, and photos were taken with a specially designed pink frame for the occasion. 

For the twelfth grade girls, there was an amazing informational session led by Dr. Sara Al-Reefy, who had agreed to teach a short lesson on breast cancer. She detailed information about the symptoms, possible causes, preventative measures, and much more. For the rest of the Secondary School, there was an informational Kahoot! Quiz played in advisory, which was created by senior Nicole Thu. 

In Elementary school, the students made Think Pink cards, which included a QR code with important information about Breast Cancer. Healthy Calorie also participated in the event, and provided a pink lunch of pink penne pasta and pink lemonade. In addition, there was a bake sale for each school division, organized by the Grade 10 boys, Talal Audah, Yousef Algosaibi, and Hamad AlKhalifa. The bake sale money, together with funds raised through used uniform sales and a PTP donation, RVIS donated a total of BD500 to Think Pink Bahrain. The cheque for this was given to Dr. Julie Sprakel from the Think Pink Bahrain charity. The money will go in part into researching a new genetic variant for breast cancer and developing a new screening method, and also in part into education and awareness about breast cancer. Think Pink also has an online application called "iCheck”, which has information in both English and Arabic about breast cancer symptoms and how to conduct a self-examination. Be sure to check it out, and thank you all so much for participating in this year's Think Pink  activities.
