DECA Students promote cancer research

Senior DECA students Jessica Brown, Kendra Windham and Christa Seeber created T-shirts as a fundraiser called Horns for Hope.
Brown explains the team’s goals for the sale.
“[The shirts are] raising money for Fred Hutch Cancer Research and the profits we make will go there to Fred Hutch. Our goal is $1,000,” Brown said.
The T-shirts were designed in the spirit of presenting students and staff as people who support others with all types of cancer.
“[There are] horns for the Viking [spirit] and a purple ribbon. Purple to represent all cancers instead of just one specific cancer. On the back is another ribbon and then a Viking head to show Puyallup Vikings are [supporting the research]. The ‘Fight on’ is just fighting on for people who have cancer,” Brown said.
On coming up with the idea for the shirts Windham describes the help they sought from business and marketing teacher and DECA adviser Kim Root.
“Our teacher Mrs. Root helped us a lot with the idea [for the shirts] and we built off of it and came up with our own ideas,” Windham said.
The shirts will be sold for $13 throughout the week of Dec. 15 as well as two additional weeks in January.
