(Nov. 10, 2009)--The Leadership Challenge program in the UTSA College of Business Center for Professional Excellence will host a kick-off event for a yearlong fundraising program to support local families with children battling cancer. The kick-off, a fall carnival, is 6 to 9 p.m., Friday, Nov. 13 at the Convocation Center west lawn on the UTSA Main Campus.
The fundraising program is part of a collaboration of UTSA and local high schools. The Leadership Challenge program will host three fundraisers during the academic year. Participating organizations will host fundraising and social events throughout the year including concerts, fashion shows, parties and athletics competitions. The activities will culminate with the "For The Kids UTSA Dance Marathon," where university and community groups will join with families affected by pediatric cancer.
Members of UTSA registered student organizations can volunteer to host a booth (event or food) in exchange for community service hours. UTSA events will be coordinated by the Leadership Challenge class.
