Artwork created by a Ramapo High School student helped visually represent a message of awareness at the Second Annual ‘Health Partners’ Breast Cancer Walk held in Wayne earlier this month.
About 500 participants completed the three-mile walk, according to a release from the event’s organizer, University Imaging at St. Joseph’s Wayne Hospital.
According to the release, Ramapo High School’s art teacher Daniel Bertelli teamed up with University Imaging’s marketing manager, Kevin Kiel, to run an art contest. Students at the regional high school were able to submit images that they felt could help raise awareness of the disease.
The winning poster, depicting pink figures walking for the cause, was submitted by Ramapo sophomore Lauren Reidy.
The poster was on display at the walk.
The entire event was put together to raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness. Donations will continue to be accepted throughout the month of October at www.universityimaging.org.
