We would like to say thank you for your interest in participating in our Inaugural Breast Cancer Walk for the 2018-2019 academic school year. We are excited to collaborate with UWG Emerging Healthcare Leaders for their Inaugural Breast Cancer Walk for 2018-2019. The walk will take place October 13th at the UWG Stadium. Our goal is to raise $15,000, and it is definitely possible. There are over 160 student organizations on campus, and if each organization raised and donated at least $100 a piece, we can easily surpass our goal! This campaign event is for all of UWG and for the community of Carrollton. We would not be able to do this without you.
