Pretty in Pink

  Posted on: September 8, 2010

Pinking Positive (a team of 15 and mostly TRU staff members) is participating in the Run for the Cure on Oct. 3 at Riverside Park.

On Aug. 14, some of the group was at the Kamloops Farmers Market in an effort to add to its fundraising efforts to date. The group had cookies, novelty purses made from bras, and other items for sale. Their efforts paid off to a tune of $442, bringing the team’s total to $2,179 and in doing so, surpassing the original team goal of $2,000.

Most of the team is from, or connected to, TRU Human Resources or TRU Institutional Planning and Analysis.
