When & Where
Russell Clark + Catherine Lovett
In 2012, Morehouse alumnus, Russell Clark, and Spelman alumna, Catherine Lovett, wanted to find a way to celebrate breast cancer survivors and raise awareness of the disease in younger women. Thus, Trick or Treat DC was created to bring people together in an event to help move the fight against cancer forward. Last year's event, held in Washington, D.C., attracted over 400 guests and raised more than $2,000 in support of the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade.
As part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month each October, Trick or Treat DC focuses on raising awareness and funds to support the advancement of breast cancer research, detection, treatment, and prevention. All event proceeds are donated to a non-profit, breast cancer organization. The 2015 beneficiary is Bright Pink, a non-profit organization focused on the prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young women.
