On Saturday, October 1, the Jacinto City Elementary student council participated in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure at the Sam Houston Park in downtown Houston. These fourth and fifth grade council members participated to show appreciation and dedication to the Houston area community. Many of the students expressed interest in doing something that made a positive impact on their lives while showing support for cancer survivors, those who are currently battling cancer, as well as to honor individuals who have lost their lives to breast cancer.
“Student council is a leadership committee that is dedicated to servicing the community,” Ms. Scott, JCE student council sponsor said. “The Susan G. Komen Walk was an excellent opportunity for our students to support those battling cancer and survivors.”
“Participating in the Race for the Cure made me feel proud because some people have cancer, and I walked to help them get better,” Jordan Balderas, 5th grader said.
