The event will raise awareness and funds for the American Cancer Society to support research and provide support services for patients who are battling cancer. Cancer is something that hits home for many of us here in the Dominican College community and we want to do all we can to help eliminate it. Your support would help us immensely!

LIFE may be a TWISTER but SORRY cancer, we’re IN IT TO WIN IT!
