On Monday, March 20, 2017, the Jefferson College of Health Sciences Student Occupational Therapy Club (SOTA) hosted a community fundraiser and sign-up event for the 2017 Komen Virginia Blue Ridge Race for the Cure® in The Dog House on the fourth floor of Carilion Roanoke Community Hospital on the Jefferson College campus.

The event gave participants a chance to sign up online for the 2017 event in Roanoke on April 29, check out a SOTA Club Bake Sale and win prizes—special recognition went to Surgical Technology student Robyn Weaver, who wore the pinkest outfit. Great job, Robyn!
