Walk a huge success! Over 40 students joined nursing faculty member, Melodie Hicks, on the Farha Foundation’s 15th annual walk to raise money and awareness for HIV/AIDS.
Students arrived early Sunday morning with family and friends in tow, to return pledge forms and to put on Vanier t-shirts donated by the Vanier College bookstore. Students were treated to choirs, a drumming band and snacks along the 7km walk. Nursing students had the opportunity to gather information for their up-coming project, on local resources available for people living with HIV/AIDS. The Vanier College community walked side by side proudly displaying our college banner and feeling good about doing something positive for others.
We raised over $700.00 for the Farha Foundation.
