Waking up bright and early on Saturday, Oct. 28, Castro Valley DECA members made a difference and contributed to the “Make Strides for Breast Cancer” walk. On that sunny day in San Jose, people of all ages joined the American Cancer Association (ACA) to raise money and awareness for breast cancer research.
DECA sold T-shirts for $10 each, and half of the profits went to the ACA. DECA volunteers did their part and wore t-shirts that said “CV DECA CARES.”
“It’s important to have a cause, such as this, that CV DECA can be part of,” said Pau Gutierrez, an officer of CV DECA.
Amongst other organizations, an overwhelming number of DECA members were part of the three-mile walk, wearing pink and purple to show support. The event created an amazing feeling within all of the participants, proving that coming together can make a huge difference.
