Bracelets for a Cure

By  | 

Two creative Wood County girls come up with a great idea to support breast cancer awareness and now they're donating their sales to those who need it most.

Last month, 10-year-olds Rylee Harner and Madison Spears of Parkersburg made rubber bracelets and sold them all on their own.

The girls raised $800 with their "Bracelets for a Cure".

Monday they donated that money to Camden Clark Medical Center.

The girls took the initiative themselves to sell the bracelets and officials say the $800 will go a long way..

"Madison started bringing these bracelets to school and we thought to ourselves, why don't we make this into a great cause," says Rylee Harner.

"We're selling them for two dollars and some people donated 100 dollars or 50 dollars," says Madison Spears

"That money will go straight into our pink mammogram fund," says Kim Couch, with Camden Clark Medical Center. "That is a fund set up for women who are underinsured or uninsured in our local area."

The girls are already brainstorming ideas to push sales even higher next October.

They say they plan to add "duct-tape bracelets" to their catalogue.
