A team of ten faculty and staff from The Art Institute of Atlanta-Decatur, a branch of The Art Institute of Atlanta, walked on Saturday, May 10, in the Susan G. Komen Greater Atlanta Race for the Cure to raise money for breast cancer research. They raised over $350 from colleagues, family, and friends - and had a terrific time at the event itself.

“Rain or shine, we’re committed to walking 3.2 miles to show our support of such a worthy cause,” said Angel Fielder, assistant director of admissions at The Art Institute of Atlanta-Decatur, and the team leader.

“The thing I love about The Art Institute of Atlanta-Decatur is that when we set our minds on something, we never give up. Regardless of reaching the goal or not, we pull together in positivity and hopefulness pushing through with the resources we have to try to make it happen (whatever IT may be),” said Fielder.

The Art Institute of Atlanta-Decatur team joined 10,000 participants on race day and helped contribute to the $1.4 million raised.  The funds help enable thousands of Atlanta women detect and survive breast cancer and support research to cure breast cancer.
