Breast Cancer Awareness Walk – October 12, 2016
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Merritt College’s Inter Club Council (ICC) hosted its second annual Breast Cancer Awareness Walk on Wednesday, October 12. According to ICC chair LaNesha Edward, “The Walk had an outstanding turnout of students, faculty, staff and administrators who came out and wore pink in support of the fight against breast cancer. The walk began at 12:30 p.m. on the track field where everyone walked one mile which is four laps around the track. Everyone had a fantastic time!” (Photos by LaNesha Edwards)
