Join our Komen for the Cure Team

Pink week activities being planned now

A College of Veterinary Medicine team has been formed for the Komen for the Cure walk/race scheduled for Saturday, May 15. The deadline to register online for the College of Veterinary Medicine team is April 23. To register, go to: www.komencolumbus.org and click on the "register today" button and the "join a team" button. The team name is "OSU College of Veterinary Medicine". No password is needed to register for the team. Usually about half of the team runs each year and the rest walk.

"Pink Week" is a series of events planned for the week prior to the Komen event. The steering committee is planning bake sales, raffles and other activities to raise additional money for Komen. In addition, guest speakers - from survivors to oncologists - will be at the college throughout the week discussing breast cancer from different perspectives.

The Pink Week steering committee members represent all areas of the college. If you have suggestions and would like to get involved in Pink Week activities, please contact Dr. Michelle Harcha, Harcha [dot] 2 [at] osu [dot] edu.
