EML Helps Paint Parkway Pink

Before the walk when all had energy
A dozen or so faculty and family members gathered on Saturday, October 4 to participate in the 6th Annual Paint the Parkway Pink fundraiser for breast cancer research. The departmental effort was to honor our colleague Dr. Trish Donaher who has been battling breast cancer for the past couple of years.

The EMLers started the 3.5 mile walk at the St. Joseph Recreation Center and concluded at Hyde Park.  The day was cool and clear, and we hadn't many excuses for the slow pace we kept. Most of us claimed a desire to enjoy nature and each others' company, and that charlie horse had nothing to do with it, thank-you-very-much.
