On the morning of March 1, 2019, the Omicron Delta Kappa circle of Texas Woman’s University hosted its 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 the ODK vision statement, “Campus leaders today, community leaders tomorrow.”
With the boundless spirit of commitment and camaraderie, 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.
March for a Cure participants also received bracelets to wear with the colors of their choice, representing a certain type of cancer. Lavender represents all cancers, pink represents breast cancer, and white represents lung cancer, etc.
March for a Cure was sponsored by the following organizations and businesses:
