Concordia University Wisconsin and former Green Bay Packer Leroy Butler team up to battle breast cancerOctober 27, 2012 // Comments Off
Mequon, Wis. – On Tues., Oct. 30 at 9 p.m. Concordia University Wisconsin (CUW) will be hosting a benefit, dodgeball tournament (Dodging for a Cure) in its Fieldhouse, with all proceeds going to the LeRoy Butler Foundation which helps women diagnosed with breast cancer. Butler, a former Green Bay Packer, will be at the event, which will consist of competing teams of six.
CUW Professor Michael McKinnis, along with the students in his LA 105 class, organized this event as a service project for the class. Servant leadership and giving back to the community are major concepts that are taught to CUW students in LA 105.
“We are thrilled that a group of CUW freshmen are organizing this service endeavor to support LeRoy Butler’s Foundation,” said Dr. Randall Ferguson, assistant vice president of Academics for Student Success at CUW. “It reflects how our freshman seminar connects students with our mission statement for positive change in our world, via servant leadership.”
The LeRoy Butler Foundation is dedicated to helping women going through breast cancer treatment obtain the assistance they need to focus on the job of healing instead of the financial impact to their families. For more information on the LeRoy Butler Foundation, visit http://www.lbf36.org/.
