Pardeeville Student Council Cancer Run-Walk (2009)
In the fall of 2008, a student council team, made up of 5 student members, decided they wanted to do a team project that would support their friend and breast cancer survivor, Carol Babcock, bring the community together and raise money for the Pink Ribbon Angels of Columbia County. Founding members of that team included Student Council Advisors Chris Lynch and Joy Bennett, and students Nicole Preskar, Sam Wais, Bree Miller, Ali Neesam and Eric Curtis.
These 5 young people set a goal in the first year of registering 100 people for their event. Little did they know how big it would become. With the help of community members like Carol Babcock, the Pink Ribbon Angels of Columbia County, special guest Olympian Suzy Favor-Hamilton, numerous businesses, friends and family, they attracted over 400 participants and raised almost $8,000 dollars in the first year!!
