Club/Org. Description

This club works to raise awareness of cancer in the college age students and to provide programming that meets that mission.  The club is responsible for hosting Pink Out Cancer games in all the sports at USAO.  While we concentrate on Pink – remember that this group is about all cancers and increasing awareness.  The group sponsors events in every trimester – Cancer Awareness Week in October that includes a Pink Bake sale, Pink Soccer games and other activities; Great American Smoke Out in November; Sun Screen Awareness before Spring Break, Pink Out Games in basketball, softball and baseball; and Mardi Gras King Cake bake sale.  DAC also plans the Chickasha Bark For Life, assists in many of the local cancer survivor and caregiver events serving food and assisting participants and has a team for the Chickasha Relay For Life.  In the past years, the group has raised approximately $25,000 to purchase pink uniforms and to donate to the American Cancer Society.  All students, staff and faculty are invited to join this organization.
