DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) -

Dougherty County schools are spreading awareness for Breast Cancer Awareness month. 

Many of the schools had a pink out Thursday, but one school went over the top. 

Lincoln Elementary School students lined up on the courtyard forming their very own human ribbon. 

Kindergarten and first grade students helped line the chalk on the grass Wednesday afternoon. 

The principal said for some kids, breast cancer hits home. 

Putting together this event was a first for him, but he is glad it went well. 

"Oh it increases our morale. It's a great morale booster and it also brings an awareness to breast awareness and so all of our kids have been contributing in essays this week and we also had a poster contest and we are helping raise money for breast awareness," said Dr. Todd Deariso, principal.

Community leaders and members of the school board also attended Thursday's event.
