Pink Campus Day

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The Minority Association of Pre-health Students (MAPS) would like to encourage the Barry community to join in raising awareness of breast cancer and raising funds for breast cancer research during our 3rd annual Pink Campus Day.

Join MAPS and wear your favorite pink clothing item on Wednesday, Oct. 7 to show your support of the fight against this disease that is the 2nd leading cause of death among women. According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 1 in 8 women will develop this disease in her lifetime. Men, this fight is for you as well – an estimated 1 in 1000 men will develop the disease in his lifetime.

Members of MAPS will table in Landon Atrium, providing information on breast cancer facts, screening, and resources, and selling pink ribbons, the symbol of the fight against breast cancer. All proceeds from the Pink Campus Day fundraising effort will benefit the American Cancer Society.
