Pink Pepto Rally

Moore MST Magnet School hosted a Pink Pepto Rally on Tuesday morning, October 14thduring Tyler ISDs support of the City-wide pink day in Tyler. Moore asked for students and staff to bring donations to present a check to the Tyler Fire Fighters to donate towards Cancer Research and Recovery. Moore raised $667.80 to donate to the Tyler Fire Fighters rally to find a cure for Cancer. Moore enrolls 800 students with 100 faculty and staff members. The Moore display of pink was almost 100% of the 900 in attendance.Students and staff wearing pink on October 14th estimated to be approximately 850 people.At the pep rally, Moore Principal Claude Lane asked students who have had a family member diagnosed with Cancer to raise their hand. Everyone in the audience had their hand up showing what an impact this disease can have on families. Mr. Lane gave the sports teams of Moore and the student body a pep talk for their upcoming games while also sharing how life is sometimes easy and feels like running downhill, but sometimes difficult as if running uphill. However, if prepared with a good foundation, as in this case with good tennis shoe support while running, we can persevere through both terrains. The students were challenged to start with a good foundation, then let their character shine through during the uphill days as well as the downhill times. (Pictures of the pep talk are in the background on a slide shown during the pep rally. Please also see pictures from the Moore Pink Pepto Rally.)
