Continuing on the traditions of the University of Wisconsin – Madison Colony Chapter, the UW-Madison sisters hosted their Fifth Annual Breast Cancer Awareness event FLOCKED. FLOCKED is an event that recreates an old campus prank from the first day of class in 1979. On that welcoming day, students were greeted with a multitude of pink flamingos covering the infamous Bascom Hill. This event marked a very memorable event in which our chapter hope that we can continue to raise campus spirit, along with promoting breast cancer awareness throughout the Madison community.   In making this event possible, pink flamingos were sold for $10 each and emails were also sent out to friends and family to help sponsor a flamingo. People who sponsored a flamingo were able to also dedicate the flamingo(s) towards a breast cancer survivor or write something to honor someone who has been affected by breast cancer.  Lastly this event also helps to educate over hundred of students about breast health, the effects, prevention, and the progress of breast cancer research as signs with facts and statistics were also displayed on Bascom Hill....
