#StudentsDoingGood Spotlight: TCU Frogs for the Cure

We know that students are ready to change the world – for good. That’s why we’ve been focusing on Students Doing Good all semester long! From action shots of students volunteering to random acts of kindness on campus, we’ve been asking for your photos with the hashtag #StudentsDoingGood. The pictures have come pouring in and we couldn’t be happier to aim the spotlight on all of the students who are making an impact.

As most of you know,  October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Though October has finally faded into November, the Frogs for the Cure at Texas Christian University are still continuing the fight! For the past nine years, they’ve partnered with Susan G. Komen to raise awareness, provide education, and get their community involved in the fight against Breast Cancer. The Frogs are currently competing in the Pink Glove Dance Video Contest where they have the chance to win $25,000 for Susan G. Komen!

The “Pink Glove Dance” began at the Providence St. Vincent Medical Center in Portland, Oregon back in 2009. The Medical Center posted a video that went viral. It showed 200 people dancing and ultimately was featured on several media outlets. They made a sequel and, eventually, the Pink Glove Dance Video contest was born.

This year, TCU Frogs, alumni, and parents teamed up with Baylor All Saints and the band, Green River Ordinance. They put together their “Purple Reigns Pink” video, set to the Green River Ordinance song, Rise Up. With dancers clad in “Rise Up” T-shirts and pink gloves, the video features TCU’s school color (purple) turning into pink – showing solidarity in the fight against breast cancer.

Check out the Frogs’s PGD video, posted below. Want to vote in the contest? Vote here and help support their worthy cause. It only takes a minute! First-time voters need to register their email address but, once you’re all set, you can vote once per day!

If you’re interested in purchasing a Rise Up tee, they’re available online here or in-store at the TCU Campus Bookstore. For more information about how to get involved with TCU Frogs for the Cure for Komen, check out their Facebook page or website. Together we can bring an end to breast cancer…forever!

We can’t wait to see more amazing examples of #StudentsDoingGood! Don’t forget – for each photo submitted with the hashtag, Barnes & Noble College will donate $1 to Habitat for Humanity. Keep up the good work!
