San Marcos Academy students recently presented a check for $2,392 to the Central Texas Medical Center Foundation to support breast cancer awareness and prevention programs at the CTMC Women’s Center for Breast Health.

As a partner in CTMC’s “think pink” initiatives, the SMA Student Ambassadors sponsored several fund-raising events during the fall semester, selling pink-out T-shirts, baked goods and other items.

This is the sixth year that the Academy Ambassadors have supported the CTMC Foundation.

“This is the largest donation we have made in the past six years,” said Shelley Henry, sponsor of the Student Ambassadors.

“Our students and parents look forward to our pink out events and are always supportive of this cause.”

The donation was presented to Dr. Sue Ann Harrison, a member of the CTMC Foundation Board of Directors and the Academy’s school physician.

The CTMC Foundation was established in 1982 as a non-profit, tax exempt organization to raise philanthropic funds for improving programs, facilities and services available through the CTMC health ministry.

During Breast Cancer Awareness month in October, CTMC joins forces with a number of Hays County organizations in an annual series of events and activities to provide much needed free mammograms and to raise awareness/funds in the local fight against cancer.
