Cancer affects millions of people each year, and at Mansfield ISD, we are wanting each person affected to know that they do not stand alone. MISD started its Colors for Caring initiative to visibly show community support for a loved one who is battling or has battled cancer.
On the first Monday of each month in the 2016-17 school year, Mansfield ISD is encouraging the community to wear a color that represents a cancer that affected the life of a loved one. (View a cancer color chart here.)
Superintendent Dr. Jim Vaszauskas was very grateful for the support he received during his bout with thymoma cancer, so he wants to continue to spread the love and encouragement through the Colors for Caring initiative implemented last school year.
The Colors for Caring Days for 2016-17 are:
- Monday, September 12
- Monday, October 3
- Monday, November 7
- Monday, December 5
- Monday, January 9
- Monday, February 6
- Monday, March 6
- Monday, April 3
- Monday, May 1
We look forward to you participating in this community initiative! Take a look at last year’s #ColorsforCaring photo gallery.
