Fort Bend Junior Service League (FBJSL) proudly accepted a check from William B. Travis High School athletic trainers in the amount of $800. The League will use the donation from Travis High School and that of other partnering organizations, including Methodist Sugar Land Hospital, to further the community’s fight against breast cancer. FBJSL is working with the American Cancer Society in an ongoing, collaborative effort to provide financial support for programs and services designed to improve quality of life, provide access to early detection and treatment, and diminish suffering for Fort Bend County breast cancer patients.
Each October the athletic trainers of Fort Bend Independent School District (FBISD) participate in various activities to raise awareness and funds for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This year the Travis High School student and staff athletic trainers raised funds by selling pink t-shirts and pink bracelets. The t-shirts and bracelets were sold to students and staff during school lunches throughout the month of October.
Any school, business or organization interested in partnering to raise funds to further breast cancer treatment and awareness is encouraged to contact FBJSL at firstname.lastname@example.org or 281-636-6272.
