Crop for a Cure event set at RHIT

Wednesday, February 24, 2010

It's time to crop for a cure.

For the third year in a row, Crop for the Cure will take place at the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology Sports and Recreation Center.

"It is a day-long scrapbooking event," event chair Kae Smith said. "There's plenty of space, and beverages and snacks are provided."

On April 3, from 9 a.m.-7 p.m., participants will be cropping as well as have the opportunity to buy items from a yard sale table, receive goodie bags and participate in drawings and door prizes. Cancer survivors will be honored around 10 a.m.

"It's a lot of fun and you make a lot of friends," Smith said.

Since beginning the fundraiser, the event has donated more than $7,300 for Crop for the Cure of the Wabash Valley Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Seventy-five percent of the money raised stays in the area in hopes of ending breast cancer.

According to the Center of Disease Control breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in women. In 2005, there were 186,467 women and 1,764 men were diagnosed with breast cancer. A total of 41,116 women and 375 men died from breast cancer.

For this event, there is a $30 registration fee and payment is due by April 1. T-shirts are available to purchase from $10-$12 and checks should be payable to Crop for the Cure and $2 from the shirts will go to the Wabash Valley Komen affiliate.

"We are hoping to have a larger crowd this year," Smith said. "It's a lot of fun and it's for a good cause."
