Marquette Catholic High School donates to fight against breast cancer Students, faculty and staff celebrate 15th Anniversary of Lee National Denim Day

Marquette Catholic High School will be taking part in a very special “casual Friday” on Oct. 8 in celebration of Lee National Denim Day’s 15 years of fighting breast cancer. Marquette Catholic is gearing up to participate in this grassroots program which has raised more than $80 million for breast cancer research by simply asking the nation to put on their jeans for a $5 donation to the Women’s Cancer Programs of the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF).

“Our students, faculty and staff are always interested in participating in charitable events,” Principal Jim White said. “The money helps fight breast cancer, a cause that is very important to many of us.There is not one person here at Marquette Catholic that has not been touched by breast cancer and we certainly understand the difference one person can make in any effort.”

This year, Lee National Denim Day is proud to partner with the Cancer Support Community, an international not-for-profit dedicated to providing support, education and hope to people affected by cancer.

“We are more grateful every year at the number of organizations like Marquette Catholic High School who come together across the country and donate to make this grassroots program a continued success,” Liz Cahill, vice president of marketing communications for Lee Jeans, said.
