Queen’s Wears Pink – campaign spearheaded by Commerce student

Posted on October 29, 2010

Queen’s students and faculty gathered on Tindall Field to demonstrate their support for those affected by breast cancer on Oct. 28. Throughout October, numerous events and fundraising initiatives put the issue in the spotlight on campus. Pink t-shirts with the slogan “Queen’s Wears Pink” were sold for $10, with proceeds going to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. The campaign was spearheaded by Adam Mitchell, BComm’11, ComSoc Outreach Commissioner, who was thrilled with the response. “Within 28 hours we had over 1,400 people on the Queen’s Wears Pink Facebook page,” Adam said.
