Nearly everyone has been touched by breast cancer in some way. In an effort to raise awareness, a 2k walk and 5k run will be held at Lewis & Clark on Thursday, April 18.  The walk is open to all faculty, staff, alumni, and students and will begin at 11 a.m. 

All money raised will go to support our local American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer program.
