Quirk Spearheading "Real Men Wear Pink" Campaign

For the second year in a row, Gerald G. Huesken Middle School Principal Denis Quirk is spearheading a “Real Men Wear Pink” campaign in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

This year, Quirk has set a goal to surpass last year’s fundraising total of $2,500. Quirk has also added incentives to his middle school students by promising several fun events when he reaches the $500, $1000, $2000, and $2500-plus benchmarks.

In addition, the middle school will be holding a Spirit Week beginning Monday, Oct. 19 and Friday, Oct. 23, has been designated as “Pink Out Day” at the school. Donating to Quirk’s Real Men Wear Pink initiative is not restricted to middle school staff, students, and their families; the fundraiser is open to anyone who would like to support this worthy cause.

The Real Men Wear Pink campaign is part of CV’s ongoing partnership with Relay for Life and the American Cancer Society. Real Wear Men Wear Pink, a national campaign, gives men a leadership role in the fight against breast cancer.
