This weekend community members can turbo kick for a cause.
Donations will be accepted at Turbo 4 A Cause Saturday, June 1, at noon in the Student Recreation Center on the UT Main Campus to benefit Mesothelioma Charities. Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that affects the lungs and chest wall.
Last year’s fundraiser included more than 200 participants and raised more than $1,000, leading the Office of Recreation to hold the benefit this year as well. It is the fourth year for the fundraiser.
People of all ages are welcome to participate in the free, public event.
The first 100 people who make donations will receive a T-shirt, and there will be raffle prizes throughout the session.
Donations also will benefit the Office of Recreation Student Development Fund.
For more information, contact Steve Hardy, assistant director of operations and marketing for the UT Office of Recreation, at 419.530.3707 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
