On September 18, a group of Barnard's faculty, staff and students helped fight breast cancer by participating in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure and raising $12,154.  It's not too late to help out: donations are still welcome through the end of October. 

Read about Team Barnard: Remember Jayma in the August edition of the Komen Greater NYC Newsletter.  An excerpt:

"Team Barnard:  Remembering Jayma was created in 2006, a couple of months before the death Jayma Abdoo, who worked in the Dean’s Office of the college.  Abdoo had a recurrence of breast cancer after being in remission for five years.  She died before the Race, but 30 colleagues walked in her honor that year.  The team continues to race — remembering her and others who have suffered from the disease."
