Making Strides Against Breast Cancer

Posted by iusbvision on October 9, 2006

All women, no matter your race, ethnicity, or anything else that separates us, can relate to the fear of breast cancer. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and many places are raising support for these women.

Walmart’s hair place is giving $10 haircuts if you donate it to American Cancer Society. The Lifetime television network is showing movies about women who have survived breast cancer. They also have a new movie out that features a woman who is diagnosed with breast cancer, has surgery but wears lipstick to make her feel like a woman.

IUSB is doing a couple of things also.  On Saturday, October 14, you can join IUSB with their second annual 5K walk or run.  You can join in a fun walk or competitive run. Registration starts at 7:30 a.m. and the run/walk starts at 9:00 a.m.  To get involved you can call 574-257-9789 or go to www.cancer.org/stridesonline.  Sponsoring the run/walk are American Cancer Society, 1st Source Bank, WNDU and 95.3 WAOR.  Also the Psychology club, is trying to collect $300 for the American Cancer Society.  If you are interested in donating you can find their table in Wiekemp Hall. 

You can also donate your time at the run/walk by working at t-shirt stations, food and water stands, and registration stands.  The shifts last from 2 to 5 hours, as early as 7 am to as late as 12:30 pm.  You can also help set up or tear down tables.  If you are interested in helping, call Joyce Columbo at 574-257-9789.
