Students at Greater Johnstown High School involved in the Students Against Drunk Driving (SADD) club are working on a fundraiser to increase cancer awareness. SADD is dedicated to providing students with the best prevention tools possible to deal with the issues of underage drinking, drug use, risky and impaired driving, and other destructive decisions. Johnstown High School’s more than 80 SADD students have committed themselves to a cause which has not only had an impact on their lives but on those in the surrounding community.

Members of SADD have been hard at work making bracelets to support and remember those who fought and are fighting the battle against cancer. Bracelets are available in various colors to signify the many types of cancer. Included with each bracelet are the words “Worn to salute our survivors, honor those fighting, and in memory of those we lost”. The students will also be seeking donations through a district wide faculty dress down day and “I Am Every Patient” Hope Support Cure t-shirt die cuts.

Bracelets are available to purchase for $3.00 and all donations raised will be used for the “greatest patient needs” of local cancer patients being treated through Conemaugh Cancer Care Center. To purchase a bracelet, contact Lisa Miller at (814) 533-5601 ext 4, or lmiller@gjsd.net.
