Daisy Run 2018
Please join Lauralton Hall in support of breast health education at the 3rd Annual Mary Ann Wasil Daisy Run on Saturday, October 20, 2018 at 12:30 PM at Lauralton Hall. Runners and walkers of all ages are invited! The event features a one-hour run/walk on the LH track along with other activities hosted by LH students. All profits support the Get In Touch Foundation and the Norma F. Pfriem Breast Cancer Center.
The $20 entry fee includes a Daisy Run t-shirt, lunch provided by Subway, and two raffle tickets. In addition to the run/walk, the event features a variety of activities designed by Lauralton students in celebration of the theme Courage & Faith to Hope & Strength.
The Daisy Run kicks off Lauralton's Pink Week, October 20 - 26. Throughout the week Lauralton students learn about breast health, deck out the campus in pink, promote awareness through art, and "get their pink on" with a dress down day and a prep rally. Lauralton's fall sports teams also compete in the "Power of Pink Challenge" to raise funds at their games.
In a special way during Pink Week, the Lauralton community remembers Mary Ann Wasil, founder of the Get In Touch Foundation who launched the Daisy Wheel, an interactive, safe, and easy-to-use tool showing the eight steps for a breast self-exam. Read more about Mary Ann Wasil, whose daughter Besty Nilan now serves as president of the Get in Touch Foundation which in 2018 is celebrating a major milestone -- 1,000,000 Daisy Wheels distributed to girls and women globally.
