On Sunday, Nov. 17, Mercyhurst’s chapter of the Colleges Against Cancer club organized a Christmas event unlike any other.
The club called all of its members to meet at the Tullio Field wearing red for a group picture. Students were arranged in the shape of a holiday-colored ribbon for the image.
These images will then be printed onto the club’s Christmas cards, which will be distributed along with holiday gift baskets to the patients at the regional cancer center in Erie.
The Christmas themed cards will also be sent to cancer survivors.
A group of 40 members of the Colleges Against Cancer and Relay For Life clubs as well as other volunteers participated in the photo.
“It brings everyone together and makes them aware of our club,” said Jenny Politano, president of the Colleges Against Cancer club.
