PITTSBURGH—For the fifth year in a row, the Community College of Allegheny County (CCAC) Honors Program has won the Pink Feet Race for the Cure. CCAC raised nearly ten times the combined total of its competitors to benefit breast cancer research.

The annual event pits CCAC against Point Park and Robert Morris universities in a friendly competition to raise funds for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation. The four CCAC campuses also competed with one another, which helped the college successfully raise $2,676 out of the 2011 event’s total of $2,896.

On November 29, honors students and honors directors from the three colleges presented their checks to Komen for the Cure, and CCAC was once again awarded the Pink Feet Trophy for 2011. Julia Fennell, CCAC Honors Program director, and students Kelly Butler, Jamie Fair and Lori Linsenbigler accepted the trophy on behalf of CCAC.

In addition to Linsenbigler, CCAC Leadership in Honors Scholars Svetlana Suvorova, Megan Hennessy and Genesis Hammond-Schrock served as team captains at their respective campuses.
