Wear Yellow Day raises awareness of cancer and support in finding a cure

GREEN BAY, Wis. - You might have noticed a theme on Friday. It was Wear Yellow Day. It's to help raise awareness and support to find a cure for cancer. The group behind it is called Sting Cancer.

"It's so cool. I think it's so amazing that our community is so close. Yellow is such a fun color representing happiness and everything, so it's exciting," said high school senior Emily Holland.

The Sting Cancer group was founded by cancer survivor and Green Bay Area Public School District faculty member Nicholas Nesvacil. Since 2004, the group has grown from a few students at Preble HIgh School to hundreds of students in 32 area schools.  

In the past 14 years, 41,000 Wear Yellow Day shirts have been sold to support the group's mission of starting and supporting programs and activities for schools and the surrounding community to lessen the effects of cancer.
