Breast Cancer Awareness (BCA) Campaign

Our annual Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign, Beyond Pink, consisted of one week of fun activities aimed at promoting breast cancer awareness around campus, including spicy food eating competition, pink Zumba, Roti and Chipotle fundraisers, date auction, raffle tickets sale, etc. All proceeds from the event go to our official partner, Avon Breast Cancer Crusade.

This year, we had over 40 sponsors all around Chicago. Throughout the campaign, we had more than 700 students and 14 student organizations participate in our various events, raising $2947 in total for the campaign. This year's BCA was very successful, although we definitely have many improvements to make for next year's campaign.

Huge shoutout to our VP Service Lydia "psylocke" Sum for planning a successful BCA campaign and to all the sisters for their energy and commitment!

Giving Tuesday

On November 28th, we gave back to the UChicago community by passing out hand-warmers to security guards around campus. They keep us safe even in the coldest Chicago winters, and we are deeply grateful to them.
