5K raises money and awareness for breast cancer

After all of the activities and food-focused events during Family Weekend, it is easy to forget about some of the healthier events offered on campus.

The University’s Colleges Against Cancer club hosted one of these health-centered events, Paint Bucknell Pink, a 5K run/walk that took place on Sept. 29.

Both students, parents, and even dogs were present for the event, making the run a huge success. Participants could either walk or run, and the $20 registration fee supported breast cancer research.

“It’s such a great cause … through Paint Bucknell Pink, we raised awareness and money for breast cancer,” club member Katie Kuntzman ’16 said.  

Colleges Against Cancer is a club on campus that hosts several fundraising events each year. The club meets every Wednesday to discuss upcoming events, and club members often make cards for children at Geisinger Medical Center in Danville, Pa.

Paint Bucknell Pink is the club’s main fall event, but they also host Relay for Life in the spring. They will host a bone marrow drive next month as their kickoff event for Relay for Life.

Colleges Against Cancer has a meaningful cause for many students on campus, so be sure to find out what you can do to be involved in the club!
