NVCC Community Raises Funds for Cystic Fibrosis Foundation

NVCC Community Raises Funds for Cystic Fibrosis Foundation

On a bright, warm autumn afternoon, 60 staff, faculty, and students walked to raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The walk, held on October 19, began at the College’s Atrium Plaza and was sponsored by the Student Government Association (SGA) and the Student Activities Department of NVCC. The SGA sold t-shirts featuring the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation logo and the NVCC logo on the front and the team name “Chelsea’s Champions” on the back.  The shirts and team were created to honor a student who suffers from the illness and to raise money in her honor.  The shirts, which have been on sale since September, are $10 each and all proceeds raised through their sale will go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.  Walkers completed one lap around the NVCC campus and celebrated the end of their walk with an after party where refreshments and music by New York-based EDM Trap band Trillmatik were enjoyed. The walk is part of the SGA/Student Activities “give back to the community initiative” which runs the entire academic year.
