Pink Week wrap-up

Last week's Pink Week was a great success, raising nearly $1,800 for breast cancer research! The Pink Week committee (Komen Race/Walk for the Cure Team) and SCAVMA hosted talks, bake sales, contests and auctions for charity at the College of Veterinary Medicine through Friday, May 15 to raise awareness about breast cancer and raise money for research. Proceeds benefited Komen Columbus ($975) and the Elizabeth Gee Fund for Breast Cancer Survivorship at The James ($807.78). The highlight of the week was a talk by Dr. Rebekah Gee, physician and women's health advocate (and daughter of The Ohio State University President E. Gordon Gee), in the Veterinary Hospital Auditorium.
