West Middle School donates $1,500 to SOMC Cancer Center


After holding a ‘Dance-a-Thon’ to raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness, students from Portsmouth West Middle School recently donated $1,500 to the SOMC Cancer Center. An additional $1,500 was donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

The students raised the money by selling water and refreshments during the two-day ‘Dance-a-Thon.’ Each student participating in the event also donated $2 for each period in which they took part in the Dance-a-Thon. Health and Physical Education teacher, Amy Kayser, helped organize the activities.
