THREE LAKES - Grey and dreary skies couldn't keep Three Lakes High School students inside today. Students walked around the track wearing their best pink outfit.

It was all part of the school's first Pink Day. It raised money for Pink Ribbon Riders. It's a local charity supporting both women and men with breast cancer.

"Since it was just October, we wanted to show our support somehow because we do have kids in the school who either have moms, or kids know somebody in the school, that have breast cancer," says Isabella Devereaux, FBLA Vice President.

Pink Day was put on by the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) club. But almost all the school took part in it.

"It was really good," said Peyton Radaj, FBLA Secretary.
"Yeah, I think it went really well," says Isabella Devereaux.
"It was good," said Abby Zielke, FBLA President.
"Way better than we thought," said Devereaux.
"Its cool going to a small school because everyone rallies together like that, like....we're all there for each other. Yeah!" said Radaj and Devereaux.

The day also included a raffle. All the money raised goes to the Pink Ribbon Riders. The school raised around $900.
