A group of Watertown High School students decided to raise money to fight breast cancer and they were able to bring in more than $1,000 to fight the disease.

The Think Pink drive in October raised money to fight breast cancer, said WHS Senior Class President Kayla Johnson.

“I know five brave women battling this terrible disease,” Johnson told the School Committee earlier this month.

The group made up T-shirts and sold pink ribbons. They also asked students and faculty to donate change. They also got an unexpected boost.

“When we went to Watertown Sportswear they told us that an anonymous faculty member paid for the T-shirts,” Johnson said. “We were able to collect $1,250 to give to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.”
