Resident Assistants to march against breast cancer

(10-13-2000) All 120 resident assistants from Boston College's dormitories will take part in the five-mile "Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk" along the Charles River in Boston this Sunday.

The event, organized by the American Cancer Society, is expected to draw 40,000 walkers and raise as much as $3.5 million for breast-cancer research.

The walk begins Sunday morning at 9:30 at the Hatch Shell on the Charles River Esplanade. Walsh Hall Director Amy Bedard said RA's from Boston College's 32 residence halls are walking as part of a year-long Office of Residence Life service campaign, "Men and Women for Others," inspired by the Ignatian educational ideal.

She said the RA's hope to bring as many of their floor-mates as possible along on the walk, and urged all members of BC community to either participate in the walk or make a donation. Walkers may sign up between 8 and 10 a.m. on the morning of the event. For more information, contact Lane Lessem of the American Cancer Society at (508) 270-4700 or Amy Bedard at xt2-3222.
