Shown here, from left, are: Joyce Murtha Breast Care Center Director Patty Felton; Mount Aloysius College Director of Human Resources Tonia Gordon; Vice President for Student Affairs, Jane Grassadonia, PhD; President and CEO of Windber Medical Center and member of the Mount Aloysius Board, Barbara Cliff, PhD; Mount Aloysius President Tom Foley; Assistant Athletic Director and Head Women’s Volleyball Coach Brianna Baker; Department Chair of Surgical Technology at MAC, Amanda Minor, and Chairman of the Windber Medical Center Board and MAC Board member, Judge David Klementik.
CAPTION: The Mount Aloysius “Pink Out” effort was aimed at promoting better health for women through early detection of breast cancer, urging baseline and annual mammograms and breast self-exam. The effort also sought to raise awareness and funds supporting the outstanding work of the Windber Medical Center’s Joyce Murtha Breast Care Center. The community embraced the message and nearly 300 Mount Aloysius students, faculty, staff and area residents signed the “The Pink Pledge,” marking their personal commitment to promoting better breast health and awareness. The volunteer effort culminated in a totally “pinked out” Mount Aloysius Volleyball game, pitting the Ladies Mounties against Shenandoah University. The tournament took place before a packed Mount Aloysius Athletic Fitness and Wellness Center.
