“I’m thrilled that this is becoming not just a college event but a community event involving local businesses, families, and students all joined for a common cause: to help local families with cancer. The STOMP will continue to grow and become a highly anticipated, well known WCU and West Chester area event.”

said Megan Hess president of the BHH, WCU Chapter. Hess also states,

“The WCU STOMPS Cancer 5K has been the highlight of my college career. It is a project I took on not knowing just how much I would fall in love with the cause and the people.

 

We are so proud of these WCU students. Their efforts raised over $9,000 for local families with cancer. Unexpected Amazingness!!

 

(Special thanks to the BHH, WCU Chapter exec board for making it all possible!)
