Daisy Run 2019
Please join Lauralton Hall in support of breast health education at the 4th Annual Mary Ann Wasil Daisy Run on Saturday, October 19, 2019 at 12:30 PM - 2:30 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 on the field 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 19- 25. 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 and student clubs/organizations also compete in the "Power of Pink Challenge" to raise funds.
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 has distributed 1,000,000 Daisy Wheels globally.
