On Saturday, Oct. 11, the CSI campus community will host the fourth annual CSI Breast Cancer Walkathon. Bringing together the students, alumni, staff, friends, and families of the CSI community, as well as the entire borough of Staten Island, the 2014 CSI Breast Cancer Walkathon is a fundraising event to raise awareness and funds for the Staten Island Breast Cancer Research Initiative (SIBCRI).
Directed by Donna B. Gerstle, professor and Director of CSI’s Center for Environmental Science, the SIBCRI is a multidisciplinary approach aimed at making a positive impact on breast cancer incidence and mortality on Staten Island and beyond. Since its inception, the Walkathon has been symbolic for SIBCRI supporters, as it provides them with a setting to gather with family and friends, and unite under the mission to spread awareness and eradicate this life-altering disease.
Starting at 10:00am at the fountain of the Great Lawn, the two-kilometer Walkathon route will meander through CSI’s verdant 204-acre campus, and will highlight the SIBCRI’s “Live Green, Embrace Pink” slogan. To participate in the Walkathon, registration is required with a requested donation of $25. Each registered walker will receive a SIBCRI t-shirt, tote bag, and other giveaways. All contributions are tax deductable.
