THP Project Purple Initiative: ROCKAWAY, NY
Trail Blazers in the THP Project Purple initiative movement, both Morris Hills and Morris Knolls High Schools have continued to inspire, educate and bring awareness to their students and community through multiple, creative, empowering, and educational events over the past 3 years.
A collective core group of 85 Morris Knolls and Morris Hills students, teachers and community alliance members work together to plan and implement THP Project Purple initiative activities. Events have included participating in health fairs and hosting a 5k Purple Color Run to showing the ESPN Films documentary, Unguarded, to incoming freshman and even selling Purple bagels.
The THP Project Purple message has truly become part of the daily school cultures and for the 2015 THP Project Purple launch, the schools provided over 900 purple shirts to students and community members in addition to 700 purple awareness bands and purple shoelaces for all those who took the pledge and supported the initiative.
Morris Knolls and Morris Hills students, teachers and community alliance members are a true testament to what you can accomplish when you work together….Purple Strong!
