Students Deliver Support, Enthusiasm for the Race

Hamilton Students at the 2011 Race for the Cure.

If you’re an avid or even frequent reader of our blog, you may have heard of the students from Hamilton Township. For years they’ve provided a colorful and exuberant presence on Race day. This year more than 200 student volunteers served as a “Human Barricade,” and helped to organize a busy Start-line area. For the fifth year in a row they won the High School Team Challenge award, as they registered 916 students, staff, faculty members. Amazing! The leader behind the students‘ involvement is Carole Morbitzer, whom Susan G. Komen for the Cure honored with the 2011 “Outstanding Volunteer of the Year” award out of thousands of volunteers worldwide.

Hamilton Township students added another element to the Race this year, and organized and choreographed a flash mob at our onsite registration location at Easton in the week prior to the Race.

For all the help, support and inspiration these students have provided for our affiliate, they now need something from us.

Organizers have again applied for a TrueHero grant and the money from the grant will be used to help pay for a portion of the students’ registration fees for the 2012 Komen Columbus Race for the Cure. All of the money received from the grant will go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
