Cayla Walker, a 2015 Archbold High School graduate and junior at Defiance College, is working with another DC student to promote breast cancer awareness.
Walker is co-managing Project Pink with Marissa Windau, a junior from Castalia. Windau created Project Pink, a student-led initiative.
Project Pink is partnering with the northwest Ohio affiliate of Susan G. Komen, the world’s largest breast cancer organization.
“I wanted to get more involved, and this is a good way to get involved,” Walker said.
Project Pink had a kickoff event Monday, Oct. 30 on the DC campus. As part of the kickoff, Project Pink will host Pink King and Queen fundraising events.
The students who collect the most money for the Komen organization will win the King and Queen titles in the spring.
Walker said other fundraising activities include plans for “Pink Games” and a pink decorating contest.
In addition to fundraising, Windau said in a press release Project Pink will also focus its efforts on increasing breast cancer awareness and knowledge on campus and in the larger community around campus throughout the 2017-18 academic year.
“I’m excited to be able to help,” Walker said.
