The students of Robert Morris University have worked hard to spread unexpected amazingness for families with cancer!
On April 8th, the Bringing Hope Home Chapter hosted their second annual Color Run 4Hope with the RMU Residence Hall Association. It was a 5K walk/run with five color stations so participants can cover themselves in colors! They had 112 participants and 40 volunteers. They raised over $1,2350 for families with cancer! They also raffled off a cake donated by one their Adopt-a-Families the chapter adopted over the holidays.
On April 9th, the RMU chapter and Delta Tau Delta hosted a Knocker Soccer Tournament to raise money for families with cancer. The event took place in the football stadium and ten teams participated.
President Andrew Birk said,”The events went really and we can’t wait to do them again in the fall.”
An RMU group Mixed Innovations partnered with BHH for a Communications Seminar class to raise money for families with cancer. The group hosted a quiz show called Let’s Get Comfortable where friends answered funny questions to see how well they did or did not know each other. Jessica Wright, the event organizer said you may ever know how well you know each other.
‘My group chose to partner with you all because we feel your mission and what your nonprofit does is very important. We talk about how at some point we have either known someone (friend or family member) who has dealt with cancer and understand how difficult it can be.”

Overall the students’ events were a huge success and allowed RMU students to learn more about the unexpected amazingness of Bringing Hope Home!
