‘Digging’ for a cure

The RIT Student Athlete Advisory Committee in conjunction with the RIT Athletics department and Tiger Den sponsored a Real Tigers Dig Pink night for breast cancer awareness, Oct. 1. The event raised $1,500 in donations to the Side-Out Foundation, which supports breast cancer research.

Larissa Harasymiak, second-year biology major and women’s lacrosse player, spearheaded the Strands for Hope movement with her women’s lacrosse teammates. “Our goal is to spread the word around campus and get as many women involved,” says Harasymiak. “We want to get people aware of how serious breast cancer is. It seems like everyone has someone they know who has been affected by breast cancer in some way.”
