7th grader raises money to fight cancer

Alyssa Espinoza, a seventh-grader at Centre, recently completed a breast cancer awareness project as part of her enrichment class.

At the homecoming game Oct. 16, she sold pink helium balloons, cupcakes, stickers, and lemonade to promote breast cancer awareness in the Centre community.

At halftime, she read a short narrative about statistics regarding breast cancer, after which those who had purchased balloons released them in honor of a loved one who was affected by breast cancer.

Proceeds were donated to the Tammy Walker Cancer Center in Salina.
