Teaming Up to Fight Cancer

Last week, Mary mentioned an awesome new club starting, Student Society for Cancer Research at IU. There's lots of really cool things that students are getting involved in this semester to support local organizations and events. Students in Read have volunteered two days with Habitat for Humanity, to help the IU community build houses for low-income families, along with supporting other organizations by collecting food and clothes for homeless.

March marks the beginning of fund raising for Read's Relay for Life 2010 team. The group of approximately 15 students will walk for almost a full day at the Bloomington Relay for Life, to help raise money for the American Cancer Society.

Sunday night, the Hutton Honors College Student Association Read Hall leadership organized a meeting for students to get information and sign up for the team. They are planning several fund raisers for the month of March in preparation for the April walk. If you see us on campus, please support our fund raisers!
