On the morning of March 1, 2019, we hosted our first on-campus 5K, March for a Cure. With a total of 41 participants and $1,026 raised, March for a Cure was a significant example of one of TWU’s strongest mottoes, #CampusWithAHeart.
With the commitment and comradery that runs through TWU, March for a Cure brought together students, staff, faculty, friends, and family members for a meaningful cause. Participants and supporters unified to commemorate the fight against the many different types of cancer and to honor loved ones who have been affected by it.
100% of the donations were granted to CancerCare, a national nonprofit that provides free support services and information to help people manage the emotional, practical and financial challenges of cancer.
The weather was cold but our hearts were warm. The sky was grey but our smiles shined brightly. We had every reason to feel blue, but we proudly persevered the 5K in maroon. Go Pioneers!
