School of Education’s Kappa Delta Pi Team Unites to Fight Cancer
October 25, 2011 - Union University’s Kappa Delta Pi team will be participating in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. The event will be held on Saturday, October 29, 2011 to support the fight against breast cancer, and it will support the Memphis-Midsouth Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Komen for the Cure is the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors, as it seeks to eradicate the life-threatening challenges of cancer. As a non-profit, Komen for the Cure also seeks to educate and inform people, while supporting the endeavors of science to find related cures.
Dr. Dianne Morgan is serving as a faculty sponsor for Union’s Kappa Delta Pi Race for the Cure team. She speaks to the importance of the event to Union University’s School of Education by saying, “ The university and the community share an important partnership in society's growth. I am thankful for the opportunity for our Honor Society, Kappa Delta Pi, to sponsor a team in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure alongside the community. We are grateful for all the ways the community supports us and we are glad to be able to give back.”
Union’s Kappa Delta Pi team consists of university faculty, staff and students, and it will serve as an opportunity for relationships and community to build between related individuals. But more importantly, such involvement will enable the university to further participate with the community, while contributing to the fight against cancer.
