Students from the COBE Living Learning Community volunteered at the annual PurpleStride Walk on Saturday, September 7, a fundraiser for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.
Students got up early to decorate for the event, gave directions and cheer on participants, and pass out water to the 5K walkers and runners.
“These eleven first-year business students learned how small actions can have a big impact and experienced the pride that comes from representing Boise State in a great cause,” said faculty-in-residence David Hunt. “I was really proud of the way they embraced the spirit of the event.”
Purplestride Boise 2019 was presented by Idaho Gastroenterology Associates and Digestive Health Clinic and had record-breaking attendance and raised $94,500. Funds are used for research, clinical initiatives, patient services and advocacy.
