Shop for a Cure comes to Barnes & Noble at UND Bookstore


In support of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Sept. 25 through Nov. 1, Barnes and Noble at UND is participating in the Shop for a Cure fundraising campaign. With Shop for a Cure, college bookstores across the country sell limited edition breast cancer awareness clothing and merchandise, with a portion of the profits going to the National Breast Cancer Coalition Fund (NBCCF). In addition to raising money for NBCCF, Shop for a Cure hopes to raise breast cancer awareness on college campuses.

"Breast cancer doesn't just affect women, it has an impact on entire families and communities," says Melissa Schmitt, director, Barnes & Noble College Booksellers. "We are delighted to support the NBCCF in their fight against breast cancer and to help educate campus communities about this disease." Last year's Shop for a Cure campaign collectively raised over $50,000.
