Lauralton Hall's Pink Week was celebrated October 18-22 to support breast health education. Throughout the week Lauralton students learned about breast health, decked out the campus in pink, promoted awareness through art, and "got their pink on" with a dress down day. This week also culminated in the 6th Annual Mary Ann Wasil Daisy Run on Friday, October 22, 2021 on the Lauralton Hall track and field.
In a special way during Pink Week the Lauralton community remembers Mary Ann Wasil, founder of the Get In Touch Foundation who launched the Daisy Wheel, an interactive, safe, and easy-to-use tool showing the eight steps for a breast self-exam. Read more about Mary Ann Wasil, whose daughter Besty Nilan now serves as president of the Get in Touch Foundation which has distributed over 1,000,000 Daisy Wheels globally. The Daisy Run event features a one-hour presentation with Guest speaker Betsy Nilan followed by a run/walk on the LH track in celebration of the theme Courage & Faith to Hope & Strength.
