Plaza Makes Strides against Breast Cancer

October 25, 2017

Plaza’s annual participation in the fight to end breast cancer raised more than $1700 so far this month with multiple activities. Students, faculty, administrators, and staff baked, bought, and walked to support the American Cancer Society.

On October 12, volunteers donated food and helped to staff to the annual bake sale on the Commons. Students bought baked goods, purchased pink merchandise, and modeled pink clothing to raise money and awareness.

The following Sunday, the Plaza team was out bright and early at the Making Strides Breast Cancer Walk in Flushing Meadows Park. Dean Loffert led a team of volunteers at registration while Dean Howle and the walking team enjoyed the good weather.

Thank you to the many students and staff who participated and donated! If you would still like to make a contribution, click here to support Plaza’s team.
