Named 'Largest School Team' for Third Year
Three years and counting. That’s how many consecutive years Western Nevada College has won the award for the largest school team at the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. The streak continued as WNC’s contingent was among thousands of participants in the 14th annual Komen Northern Nevada ‘Race for the Cure’ at Grand Sierra Resort and Casino in Reno.
“Our team raised $2,500, and we had 75 team members,” said team captain Sara Maul, an instructor in WNC’s nursing department. She said the award was made possible through the efforts of the nursing students, who “went to work signing up and getting their friends and relatives to do the same.”
WNC faculty and staff also continued their support of the team. Catherine Fuller captained the award-winning WNC teams in 2010 and 2011.
The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure is part of global movement to fight breast cancer. Through a 30-year crusade, the organization has been working to bring an end to the disease through groundbreaking research, community health outreach, advocacy and programs in more than 50 countries.
