Doha College, one of the oldest international schools in Qatar, pulled out all the stops on Pink Day to raise funds for cancer research.
The theme is no stranger to the Doha College community, with both sad and hopeful stories having affected teachers, students and parents alike at some point, providing everyone with a motivation to support.
Students and staff wore every shade of pink to raise awareness, sold ribbons and cookies and donated very generously to the school’s dedicated Charities Committee. Across the school’s Primary and Secondary levels, the fundraising efforts managed to reach an astounding QAR25,840, which will be donated to charities that support cancer research.
It is inspiring to see the empathy and compassion that are clearly nurtured at Doha College, qualities that contribute to the creation of a supportive society.
Pink Day is an opportunity for students to tap into these qualities and translate them into action. The school wishes to thank their Charities Committee members, who worked tirelessly to make the fundraiser happen, and everyone who donated.
