Livestrong Day May 16th

Ideas for LIVESTRONG Day Events and Activities Involving Youth
Educators across the country inquired about LIVESTRONG Day events and activities in schools. Here are a few ideas to encourage youth participation on LIVESTRONG Day.
Encourage all students to wear yellow on Tuesday, May 16, as a show of support for people affected by cancer. Also encourage them to wear a LIVESTRONG wristband. Students also can create a linked wristband chain (made of yellow construction paper) to show support for local cancer survivors.
Have students prepare a presentation on Lance Armstrong, the mission of the LAF, and the needs of cancer survivors and their loved ones.
Hold a penny drive on LIVESTRONG Day and donate all proceeds to the LAF.
If you have a child or teacher with cancer at your school, invite a local oncology nurse or social worker to explain the cancer experience and answer questions.
Create a wall to pin descriptions of what LIVESTRONG means to each student. It can also be turned into a photo memory board/wall in honor of or in memory of someone with cancer.
Ask students to create artwork or cards that can be given to a local pediatric oncology unit or a child/teacher with cancer at the school.
Do a report on a book written by a cancer survivor or a book that addresses an experience with cancer.
Here are some recommendations:
