Fourth KSC Lee National Denim Day for Breast Cancer Research

From Barbara Preston, President’s Commission for the Promotion of Wellness: The denim worn on Friday, October 3, at Keene State will make a powerful statement for an important cause. As Lee National Denim Day moves into its thirteenth year, the College is gearing up to participate for the fourth time in this grassroots program which has raised more than $70 million for breast cancer research.

Participants make a $5 donation to the Women’s Cancer Programs of the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF), and in exchange are encouraged to wear denim on October 3. Funds will be used to support a groundbreaking scientific project to detect breast cancer in its earliest stage. They will also help accelerate treatment research and increase patient access to some of the most significant clinical trials in the nation, as well as support grassroots education programs across the country.

KSC offices/departments may register at the official website: or by phoning 1-800-521-5533. KSC community members who would like to participate can give their donation to the staff member who is collecting for their office / department / division. If your office is not officially registered, you are welcome to contribute through any participating office. Donations may be made by cash or by check made out to “Lee National Denim Day.”

The President’s Commission for the Promotion of Wellness will provide informational signs for participating on-campus offices, explaining why we are wearing denim as well as general information on breast cancer. Please let Barbara Preston, 8-2053, know if you will be participating so she can provide you with signage.
