The East Valley Institute of Technology will host a walk-a-thon to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society at 8:10 a.m. and at 12:10 p.m., Monday, March 7 at the Dr. A. Keith Crandell (Main) Campus, 1601 W. Main St., Mesa. The event is sponsored by the student organization HOSA Future Health Professionals.
There will actually be two walks – one for the morning session that starts at 8:10 a.m. and one for the afternoon session that starts at 12:10 p.m.
HOSA members are enrolled in health care programs in the EVIT School of Health Sciences. They are raising money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s School Series program to help fund research into blood cancers and to provide education and support for patients in Arizona.
EVIT’s HOSA chapter has set a goal of $10,000 and has already raised over $3,800. To help support their effort with online donations, visit http://events.lls.org/pages/az/EastValleyInstituteofTechnology(EVIT).
