Twenty-seven registered runners from the Broad Women’s MBA Association raised $501 to help fight breast cancer as part of the Komen Race for the Cure in Lansing on April 26.

“We had a lot of support from students and faculty,” said Elizabeth Richter (MBA ’16), who led the effort to get the Broad College of Business Full-Time MBA community involved in the event. “We had an outstanding turnout.”

In addition to the race participants and donors, members of the Broad community volunteered for the event, which also featured music and MCs on the steps of the capitol, community line dances, recognition of survivors and those currently battling breast cancer, and aerial coverage of the event.

“The Broad Women’s MBA Association strives to connect women in business to offer a forum for our members,” noted Richter, a first-year MBA representative for the association. The group hosts speakers, etiquette and personal styling events as well as participating in community activities and providing opportunities for women in the MBA program to bond.
