Event Type

Join the Honors College as we once again walk to end breast cancer! As we have done each October, a team of students will gather to raise awareness and money in support of this cause which, unfortunately, touches so many of our lives. This year’s event will take place on Sunday, October 20th from 9am-12pm. Walking with our team is an approved service opportunity for Fall 2019! Here’s how you can participate:

  1. Join our team: Visit to join our team. We encourage everyone to make a small donation as part of your sign-up, whatever feels comfortable to you. Share the information with family & friends – they are welcome to walk with us and to fundraise on behalf of our team!
  2. Sign-up here: In addition to joining on the official American Cancer Society site, we ask all HC students to “register” themselves here: This page allows us to collect additional information and communicate with you all more easily. It is important you are “signed up” in both locations.
  3. Finally, plan to join us for a t-shirt making party! This year, we’ll provide important day-of information for the service event while also hand-crafting team t-shirts! There are two opportunities to join:

Monday, October 14th – 11:20am (Free Period) OR Tuesday, October 15th – 12:45pm (Free Period); both events will take place in the Honors College, Room 203. You must sign-up before October 11 to guarantee your t-shirt for this event. Non-Honors students are welcome to join our team / attend this event, but will be asked to pay a $2.50 fee to cover the cost of t-shirts.

Please note that ONLY our team walk is permitted as an approved service event for Fall 2019 engagement; participating at other locations may not be counted for HC Engagement purposes.

Our team leaders this year are Olivia Cale ( & Erin Daly (; please direct all questions to these students.
