With all the fretting we hear about young people being apathetic or preoccupied with irony, it’s nice to meet a group of high school students who belie that stereotype.
The journalism students who run Nathan Hale High School’s C89.5 radio station believe that even small acts can make a meaningful difference in the world. To prove it, they started Do One Thing — a movement based on the notion that doing one healthy thing every day can change a person’s life and, hopefully, make a positive impact on the world.
It’s a simple, yet lofty idea. And an idea SCCA is proud to support. That’s why, in February of this year, SCCA proudly forged a new partnership with C89.5 to help promote the Do One Thing campaign across radio, social media, and events. One of the best things about Do One Thing is that it’s inclusive and not overly prescriptive. By this, we mean people of all ages are encouraged to do and share what “doing something healthy” means to them, from exercise and diet, to improving mental health, community health, global health and more.
Do One Thing fits perfectly with SCCA’s belief that healthy lifestyle choices can make a huge impact on reducing your cancer risk.
