The Pink Panthers Breast Cancer Team is graduating from Eastern Regional High School on June 23, and all thirteen members are headed to universities across the United States.

The Pink Panthers are comprised of thirteen dynamic Eastern High School Students and two freshmen students.

Cofounder and presidents Andrew and Colin Coard began the team while in fifth grade at Osage Elementary School, with five members.

They have raised more $15,000 to date for the prevention and eventual cure of breast cancer.

They create different fundraisers annually from January through April.

By working with literature supplied by Lillian Ubarry of the Camden County Cancer Screening Project; which provides free mammogram screening for underinsured or uninsured women, the Pink Panthers Breast Cancer Team are committed to advocating awareness for this disease which effects so many families.

They have forged business sponsorships with the West Berlin Shop Rite, Passariello’s and Love’s Citgo gas station in Cherry Hill.

The Pink Panthers have won the Bernie Ashner Award Presented to them in 2013 and 2015 by the Susan G. Komen Foundation Philadelphia for the high school team that raised the most money.
