More than 100 MCC students, faculty and staff took part in the 23rd annual AIDSWalk Kansas City on Saturday, marking the seventh year Team MCC has participated in the city-wide event.
The team raised $6,560, surpassing their fundraising goal by more than $1,500. Money from AIDSWalk Kansas City supports people living with AIDS in Kansas City. The three-mile walk, held at Theis Park in Kansas City, Mo., raised a total of $209,000. Organizers estimate 3,500 walkers participated.
Nancy Harrington, MCC-Penn Valley biology instructor and Team MCC organizer, welcomes anyone still interested in contributing to do so by visiting the Team MCC fundraising page any time before June 30, 2011.
