Students make impact during Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Bloomfield College students made an impact during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, raising over $1,200 through various fundraising activities as part of a two-week fundraising initiative spearheaded by the institution’s Center for Student Leadership and Engagement (CSLE).

A total of 47 students participated in the various events, with 20 campus clubs and organizations represented during 68 hours of activities. Participants sold baked good, t-shirts and various other pink accessories to commemorate Breast Cancer Awareness Month, with some students partaking in a fashion show in which all proceeds were donated to the cause.

The initiative culminated with 55 students participating in the annual “Making Strides of Newark, N.J.” Breast Cancer Walk, with the group presenting the American Cancer Society with the funds from their efforts following the event.

“Our students did an amazing job raising money and awareness for such a worthy cause,” Coordinator for Service Learning and Diversity Initiatives Nereida Montijo said of the charitable undergrads. “This initiative is important because many students have family members and friends who have been affected by Breast Cancer, and they all came together to show support for them. It makes us extremely proud to see them take such ownership of the fundraising efforts, and raise a significant donation for the American Cancer Society.”
