Busting a move for breast cancer

For Mair Hughes, administrative officer, Department of Pathology, being a member of the School’s Breast for Success Bust a Move team was personal. The fitness event gave her the chance to participate with her colleagues on something focused on health.

“Working at maintaining a healthy lifestyle is important to me, and having the chance to participate with the Schulich team in an event starring none other than fitness guru Richard Simmons was really a lot of fun,” said Hughes. It also gave her the chance to honour her grandmother - a single mother and artist who raised two daughters in occupied Holland, and a breast cancer survivor.

Together with her team members, Hughes was able to raise more than $33,000 in support of the Breast Care Centre at St. Joseph’s Hospital in London.
