DENTON/DALLAS/HOUSTON — More than 300 students, alumni, faculty and staff raised more than $10,000 for Susan G. Komen for the Cure® with their participation in the Komen Race for the Cure® in Houston and Dallas.

The Houston and Dallas teams, both known as the “Pioneers for the Cure,” also were recognized as having the largest team in the higher education category for the races held in their respective cities during October.

This marks the fourth consecutive year that TWU has received the largest higher education team award in Dallas. This also was the first year that the university expanded its team recruitment efforts to the Houston campus.

“Many TWU students will be the healthcare providers of people with breast cancer, so supporting the race is a natural fit for us,” said Veronica Castillo, a master of occupational therapy student and the TWU Houston team captain. “The fact that so many from the TWU community walked and donated money shows how much this important cause means to them.”
