East Central CC ‘Thinking Pink’ this week

MERIDIAN — Special to The Star

    DECATUR – Several activities are being held this week on the Decatur campus of East Central Community College in observance of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

    Sponsored by Phi Beta Lambda, “Think Pink Week” got under way Monday, with the distribution of pink ribbons on the East Mall, near Mabry Memorial Cafeteria.

    Staff members and students were encouraged to wear pink on “Power of Pink Day” Tuesday. A group photo of those wearing “pink” was taken.

    “Bright Pink Day” is set for today. Survey forms will be available from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. in the Tucker Applied Technology Center to determine one’s risk for breast cancer.

    Additional information about breast cancer will be available Thursday, as Association of Student Nurses representatives plan to distribute pamphlets regarding the disease and provide instruction on self-breast exams.

    The week’s activities conclude with a “Pink Balloon Release” scheduled at 11 a.m. Friday in the East Mall area.

    Balloons are available for $1 each in memory or in honor of those who have fought or continue to fight breast cancer. Donations must be received by today.

    For more information, contact PBL adviser Christy Ferguson, (601) 635-6292 or e-mail
