GU Supports Race for the Cure

On Sunday, August 14th, Grantham University participated in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Kansas City, Missouri. Team Grantham raised more than $3,500 by collecting donations and raising money through events such as a bake sale, pie-throwing event, and car wash.

On Sunday, August 28th, the University will be hosting a golf tournament at the Hidden Valley Golf Course to raise additional funds for Komen Kansas City.

In addition to the monies raised by Team Grantham, this is the third consecutive year Grantham has supported the race as a $10,000 Silver Sponsor.

All of the funds raised at the race will be used for research, education, screening and treatment programs, with up to 75 percent of the money staying in the Kansas City area, where Grantham’s headquarters is located.
