Team Killer Boobies

 
 

Team Killer Boobies

In our second year of grad school, our classmate Michelle was diagnosed with breast cancer. She was only 25. Shortly after her diagnosis, she started a hilarious and heart-wrenching blog called "Killer Boobies" to document her experience.

To show our support, we formed a training/fundraising team for a local 10K sponsored by the Massey Cancer Center. Naturally, we named ourselves "Team Killer Boobies." We blew through our initial goal of $5,000 and by the finish of the race, raised more than triple that amount with over $16,000 donated to help kick cancer's ass.

Our efforts earned us shout outs on Agency Spy, The New York Egotist, and Buzzfeed
