Jefferson/Silva students show love, support to childhood cancer patients

To commemorate September as Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, the students and staff at Jefferson/Silva High School delivered a big, visible sign of love to their neighbors at the El Paso Children’s Hospital.

Gold Ribbons raise awareness to childhood cancers, and the school formed a huge golden ribbon out of students, staff and friends on the field of Silver Foxes Stadium.

“Anything we can do to show support to the patients at Children’s Hospital, we’re going go ahead and do,” said Silva teacher Sharon Venegas. “This is a wonderful opportunity to raise awareness and show our neighbors that we are thinking about them.”

The event included not only staff and students from Jefferson/Silva, but also officials from the hospital and even parents of patients currently undergoing treatment.

For the third straight year, Silva’s Club 365 organized the Golden Foxes event.
