Prayer Service at the Pink Fountain for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Members of the Duquesne University community will gather at the “pink” fountain on campus for a special prayer service in honor of those who have been affected by breast cancer.

Attendees will place pink rubber ducks, on which they’ve written the names of breast cancer survivors and victims, into the fountain as part of the service.

Held in conjunction with Duquesne’s activities for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the prayer service is sponsored by the University’s chapters of the Kappa Epsilon professional pharmacy fraternity and the Zeta Tau Alpha sorority (both groups support breast cancer awareness as their national philanthropy) and the Office of Health Service.

When: Wednesday, Oct. 27, at noon

Where: Pink Fountain, Academic Walk, across from the Administration Building/Chapel, Duquesne University, 600 Forbes Ave.
