THE WHITE RIBBON RELAY 

ABOUT THE WHITE
RIBBON RELAY

To recognize November Lung Cancer Awareness Month, all of our collegiate chapters are participating in the first-ever cross-country White Ribbon Relay (WRR)! The White Ribbon Project (TWRP), started by Pierre and Heidi Onda, serves to increase lung cancer awareness and change the perception of lung cancer by making and distributing white ribbons, which serve as symbols of unity and love within the lung cancer community.

 

Five white ribbons, starting from different locations within the US, will make their way through our 45+ college chapters, finally meeting Heidi and Pierre in Denver, Colorado, the location of the original TWRP white ribbon made in October 2020.

We invite you to follow us as our white ribbons move across the country through each of our chapters!
