Our philanthropy, Breast Cancer Education and Awareness is the most important part of our chapter. Our fundraising chairs and philanthropy committee work effortlessly to put together various fundraisers and events to promote Breast Cancer Education and Awareness throughout Towson and our community.
ZTA has trademarked the 'THINK PINK' saying which we use to raise awareness during October; Breast Cancer Education and Awareness Month. In the past, we have worked with Susan G. Komen, and we have participated in the Hunt Valley Race for the Cure to volunteer and cheer on the survivors. Our current THINK PINK partners are American Cancer Society, National Football League, and Bright Pink. This year we participated in the Making Strides walk for the American Cancer Society, focusing on survivor recognition. We also attend Ravens’ and Redskins’ NFL football games to pass out THINK PINK ribbons, calendar stickers and shower cards. With Bright Pink, it our platform to educate and empower our members to be advocates for women's cancer and their own health.
Each year we take the month of October to spread Breast Cancer Awareness and Education. This past October we went to NFL games and handed out ribbons, we ribboned around campus, we did tabling events to decorate paper lanterns for our Light up the Night with Pike -- a night we remember and honor those have lost their fight, those fighting, and as well as women who have conquered the disease. We also held our first SororiTEA event, which was a tea party for young girls in the community. It was fun event and very successful for it being the first time!
October is our favorite time of the year, and we couldn't be more excited for the great plans we have in store this year!
