Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down

UP: To Criss Elementary fifth-graders Rylee Harner and Madison Spears, who were recently recognized by Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin for their "Bracelets for a Cure" campaign which raised money for a local breast cancer program. During Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, the two 11-year-olds made several hundred rubber-band bracelets and sold them to teachers, parents, friends and others for $2 each. Some people gave as much as $50 and $100. At the end of the month the girls had raised $820 which was given to the "Pink Mammogram Fund" at Camden Clark Medical Center. The money provided life-saving breast cancer screenings to eight individuals. Congratulations to these two caring young girls whose willingness to get involved may have saved someone's life. Their recognition by the governor was well deserved.
