HCC Nursing Students Raise Money for Cystic Fibrosis Foundation

Haywood Community College nursing students recently participated in a walk and fundraiser for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Together the traditional schedule and alternate schedule students raised over $2300 for this worthy cause. The 10K walk was set to two courses on the HCC campus. Top money raisers were Stephanie Moore from the alternate schedule program and Didi Hannah from the traditional nursing program.

According to HCC nursing instructor, Virginia Milligan, participating in this event was another way for students and the community to become more aware of this disease. “Funds raised will help in research for finding treatment for the disease. It is also a way for students and the public to gain knowledge of Cystic Fibrosis.”
