Eastern Illinois University’s chapter of the National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH) recently donated $1,079 to the Sarah Bush Lincoln Regional Cancer Center. Students raised the money by selling t-shirts, hosting a pie-in-the-face contest and a balloon release during breast cancer awareness week on the EIU campus.
NRHH is committed to mentoring and supporting the development of leaders living within the residential community and hosts a breast cancer awareness event each year. “Breast cancer impacts everyone’s lives in some way so students are especially passionate about supporting this cause,” NRHH Advisor Kelsey Cripe said.
