Student Weightlifting Event Raises Thousands for Cancer

Last Friday, Holy Cross students held their annual Benching for Breast Cancer Fundraiser.  Sponsored by the Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC ) and HC for a Cure, more than 500 students participated in the event, which raised more than $2000.  

Working in teams of four, students solicited donation pledges based on how much weight they could  lift, all while wearing a costume.  

Student organizer Elizabeth Watters ’13 says the best costume award went to the men’s rowing team dressed as KISS and the most enthusiastic award went to the softball team.  

All proceeds from the event will benefit Pink Revolution, a Worcester-based breast cancer alliance of dedicated individuals with a unified commitment to those touched by breast cancer.
