KE Selling T-Shirts for Cancer Research
April 11, 2008
Kappa Epsilon pharmacy fraternity at Southwestern Oklahoma State University is selling breast cancer awareness shirts to raise money for the American Cancer Society for cancer research.
The shirts were popular last fall and KE is bringing back the shirt sales until April 25. The fraternity has sold over 750 shirts with over $4,000 in proceeds.
The shirts can be viewed and purchased on the SWOSU campus in the Dean of Students Office, Room 212 of the Stafford Center.
“Cancer is an unfortunate disease that is currently felt all around the world. Due to widespread drive to cure the life threatening malady, researchers have managed to find possible cures through private and government funding,” said Kim Le, president of KE. “With over 16 million cases of diagnosed cancer in the U.S. alone, it is part of our responsibility to help find a solution to a pandemic that not only affects the people we know, but to a condition that may affect us.”
For individuals not on the SWOSU campus, the shirts can be purchased through an order form that can be printed from the website http://gofightpink.com/orderform.doc.
More information for the fund raising event can be found on Facebook and Myspace at "Save Second Base." Le can be reached at Lek2@student.swosu.edu or at 405.414.6880.
