" I am honored to be a Millenium Fellow and to have the opportunity to work alongside like-minded individuals who are passionate about working towards positive global change and social impact. I am excited to learn from the other Fellows about their projects, ideas, and experiences and to see how they have created and implemented innovative changes in their communities. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Community Partnership between Furman University and the Cancer Survivors Park Alliance
My project is focused on creating a partnership between Furman University and a local nonprofit, the Cancer Survivors Park Alliance (CSPA). The goal of the project is to build awareness among students and community members regarding the impact of cancer and preventative measures that can be taken today. I hope to highlight the relationship between disease, healing, and individual mindset. The proceeds raised from any related fundraisers will be donated to CSPA in order to help them further their mission of changing the way individuals live with cancer.
