Volunteers are needed at the Susan G. Komen “Race for the Cure” on Nov. 2 at Kapiolani Park. According to komenhawaii.org, the goal of the event is to “raise funds, heighten awareness and educate people about breast health.”
Club Med adviser Elizabeth Sutter explains how students will benefit from volunteering.
“The students will see how many women are affected by breast cancer and realize how many people support those in their community who are affected by this disease. This event is like a gathering place, and many people come together because of it. “
Volunteers check in at 6 a.m. and assist in passing out water to runners. Students can earn community service hours.
The event also features entertainment, interactive sponsor booths and much more. Families and friends are encouraged to support the “Race for the Cure” by participating in the race, by donating or fundraising for breast cancer research.
