The Princeton Women’s Swimming & Diving program, in partnership with the Princeton Varsity Club, hosted its 8th annual Collegians Find the Cure 5K Run/Walk on Saturday, September 19 on the campus of Princeton University.

Hundreds of runners, including the Princeton Women’s Soccer, Softball and Men’s Volleyball varsity teams, to name a few, took to the race course to support the charitable cause.  Princeton Women’s Swimming & Diving alum and two-time cancer survivor Maeve Carr ’77 kicked off the festivities at the starting line, and freshman Liam Collins paced all runners with a winning time of 16:04.

This year’s rendition of the Collegians for the Cure 5K raised over $6,200, a new event record.  Total donations since the event’s conception in 2007 now approach $20,000, with all proceeds directly benefiting the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
