As part of their philanthropy work, Mercer Law’s Association of Women Law Students organized several fundraising events for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure of Central Georgia. At the race, the association was recognized as the top team fundraiser and the top school/university division. To raise over $4,000, the group hosted events such as a zumba class, Pink Ribbon Week, a kickball tournament, and a bake sale.
The members of AWLS put a large amount of work into planning, organizing, and publicizing their events. Co-president of the organization, Megan Powers, says that this is because “the entire organization genuinely cares and wants to make a difference when it comes to breast cancer awareness.”
