Michelle Whipple: Michelle Whipple of Rec Sports at Purdue organized a large event to raise money for United Way from students. The first annual "Party in Pink, Zumba-Yogathon" brought nearly 240 students out to excersise at Vawter Field tennis courts, raised $1,191 and also educated the attendees about United Way. Donated food and giveaways from PINK by Victoria's Secret added to the fun. Michelle organized this large fundraiser in under one month. If it weren't for a downpour, it is estimated the event would have attracted over 300 students. Thank you, Michelle! -- Anne Washburn
