Concord students release balloons for cancer awareness

 

 

ATHENS, W. Va (WVVA)-- A group of students take cancer awareness sky high.

The Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity at Concord University released 100 balloons Thursday afternoon in memory of those who have been affected by cancer.

Colored balloons symbolized those who have lost the fight, those who are currently battling the disease, and cancer survivors.

"For me, it's just about getting it out there and helping people realize how hard it is to watch someone have to battle something like that," said Corey Boothe, Philanthropy Chair for the fraternity, "and how important it is to be there for them."

This was the end of a month of activities and fundraising the fraternity has done for cancer awareness.
