You couldn’t miss Team Chamberlain at the Susan G. Komen Global Race for the Cure® in Washington, D.C., on May 11. You just had to look for the tutus.
The Student Nurses Association at Chamberlain’s Arlington campus made and sold pink tutus to raise money for the team. In two days, they made nearly 40 tutus and raised more than $400 for the cause.
Male members of the staff, faculty and student body also volunteered for a “Who Should Wear the Tutu?” contest, with votes priced at a quarter each. Faculty member Daniel Ampomah, Ph.D., RN, won out and sported the tulle creation, as well as runner-up Jim Garrison, an IT support technician on campus.
“It was a great experience,” said Chamberlain Faculty Instructor Jennifer Drake, MSN, RN, CRRN, ONC. “I loved seeing how excited the students were! Everyone was dressed up in pink and taking photos of each other.”
