Capri College Raises Money for Breast Cancer
By Christina Targosz, Reporter
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - Thursday was the fifth annual Capri Cares Breast Cancer Fundraiser.
"Capri does something a little bit differently every single year for breast cancer awareness," Madison Seaborn, a Capri Instructor, said.
This year they had hair cuts for $5, pink nail polish changes for $2 and paraffin hand treatments for $2. All the proceeds go to cancer support groups in Cedar Rapids, Davenport, and Dubuque.
"Were in an industry that's full of women and this is something that maybe our sisters, mothers, and ourselves may face some day, and so even though its not a reality at this time it could be," Seaborn said.
Capri students like Casey Burns have a special interest in the bright pink ribbon. His grandma and great grandma are breast cancer survivors so he's happy his school supports the cause.
"A lot of people go through breast cancer, and so I think it's good that we are taking a stand for it and just kind of saying 'Hey, we're here,'" Burns said.
It's just a few small snips for a big cause.
Capri College has raised $27,000 for local non-profit organizations over the past four years.
