OCTOBER 2011

BREAST CANCER WALK 2011 The Breast Cancer Walk of 2010 was my first Key Club event ever. Thus, this year, when I met up with my fellow members, a feeling of excitement and nostalgia built up inside of me. About sixty and more of our members had shown to support the cause. After signing up, all of us gathered around with other key clubs from our division and fooled around while waiting for the walk. I surrounded myself with my officers and new members and talked animatedly about last year’s walk. We all bought ribbons and buttons to match our support. The walk was exhilarating. Hundreds of men and women in different shades of pink walked together to create more birthdays. Bryant Key Club was one of the loudest. My fellow classmates cheered, danced, and sang while walking down the pavements of Flushing Meadows Corona Park. Seeing all of us conjoined together in brilliant, aesthetic shades of pink made my heart flutter in pride. As a senior member and officer, I am rest assured that my members will continue to walk for breast cancer even after my time is done. - Mahenoor Baig JUVENILE DIABETES RESEARCH FOUNDATION WALK (JDRF) 2011 This event was about the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. This event was a message to tell people that diabetes is a serious thing. Diabetes is at the top when it comes to how many people are being affected by it. This year, the walk took place in Flushing Meadows Park. Many clubs from other schools had come to the event. I saw many tents selling items to raise up money for the foundation. I felt special that day actually because I felt like I was making a change and helping

!

this foundation reach its goal to find a cure and help its patient. I feel like not only me, but everyone that was there, made an impact and a statement that diabetes is something not to be taken granted for. ! Overall, this was a successful event. Bryant Key Club helped raise up money to support the foundation by giving people sneakers to sell if they signed up. The sneakers idea was a successful idea because many of them signed up for it. Some of our former members that are in

college returned such as Steven Lai. The walk was a bit short this year but after the walk was the main event. Many people from the Key Club danced their heart out when it came to the dance session. Also for everyone who attended had a free pass to enter the zoo! Overall this event was a huge accomplishment and everyone had a great time! Mahmud Bonnie

FALLY RALLY 2011

On October 29, 2011 the annual Fall Rally took place. This year it was held at the beautiful Edward R. Murrow High School in Brooklyn. Despite having to wake up early, walk in the freezing winds and trudge through the snow, the event was extremely productive. Due to the weather, we had about twelve Key Clubbers in attendance. The day started with continuous, informative workshops such as President/Vice President, Secretary, Treasuries, Members etc. The second workshop was very fun and interactive. It was the Fundraising Ideas/Service Projects. We were placed in different groups in order to break the ice between the attendees. The next workshop was Project EliMiNaTe, were we learned more about the importance and significance of maternal/ neonatal tetanus and people who are impacted. Above all, it only takes .60 cents to provide a vaccination for a newborn baby or a mother. After the very touching workshop, we had lunch. We were provided with unlimited pizza and drinks, which was defrayed from the $10 admissions fee. The last workshop was our very own Lt. Carla Pacheco’s that dealt with various ice breaker ideas. Bryant Key Club immensely enjoyed this event, from the human knot, to hugging random people brought the day to an end. This event was a crucial event for members interested in running for higher office, to gain insight about their upcoming duties and garner more information as to be a better, competent leader. The Fall Rally was a great success.
