A team of students from Nogales High School organized the Nobles Cure for Cancer Team for the Susan G. Komen walk that took place on Saturday March 11 at Dodger Stadium. Due to their efforts, team student captains Salma Diaz and Natalie Calderon were asked to be a part of a live interview with CBS News on Saturday, March 6 for their work on making not only students but adults from the community aware of the outcomes of breast cancer. The Susan G. Komen foundation helps save lives of those who suffer from breast cancer by investing in research to prevent and cure breast cancer. Students from Nogales High School mobilized a team to focus on getting education out and help change lives by attending the Cancer Walk and making young adults aware of the disease that unfortunately can happen to anyone. “The event was magnificent! It was such a great turn out and everyone had a blast seeing all sorts of people coming together focusing on one great cause, finding a cure for cancer,” said Nogales High School student Salma Diaz. “Many other schools and foundations were focused mainly on raising money. We as a school tried to focus on the education of the diseases and promoting awareness. Many people are not aware of how this problem can affect them or the people around them.”

The Nobles Cure for Cancer Team invites people to continue to donate and be a part of the team and help them take a step closer to finding a cure for cancer at
