‘Walk-It-Out’ Sets $10,000 Goal for American Cancer Society

Three Pennsylvania College of Technology student groups hope to raise $10,000 during next month’s Walk-It-Out, a mini-Relay for Life to benefit the American Cancer Society.

The second annual event sponsored by the Wildcat Events Board, the Residence Hall Association and the Student Government Association will be held at noon Saturday, April 25, on the Madigan Library lawn.

Several fundraising efforts are being coordinated to meet the organizations’ ambitious goal, including “Quizzo for Cancer,” donation cans at basketball games and in several Food Services locations across campus, and selling paper Walk-It-Out footprints that can be inscribed in honor of loved ones. The walk-a-thon itself will include a “pick-a-prize” auction, as well as the sale of “life balloons” to raise money.

“Walk-It-Out is one of our favorite events of the year because it brings together the entire campus community, as well as the Williamsport community, for an excellent cause,” said Michael J. Hersh, assistant director of student activities for programming. “This year, we are really reaching out to community businesses for donations for our raffle and, so far, the response has been very positive.”

Last year, the event collected $7,800 and attracted 250 participants.
