Students "Dash for Dad" 5K Race

On Sunday, September 19th, Community Service VP Jess Aliotta (MS2) organized a team of MS1 and MS2 students to run the 5K "Dash for Dad" race in downtown Buffalo! The race was organized by Cancer Care of Western New York, Main Urology Associates and Western New York Urology Associates to help raise awareness for prostate cancer and raise money for prostate cancer research. 15 medical students participated in the event. To top it off, 2 pairs of Sabres ticket were raffled off by Dr. Aliotta to 2 medical students participating in the event! Congratulations to Rob Taylor (MS2) who finished first in the AMA Medical School team and came in 3rd for his age group, and Jane Arcadi (MS2) and Lisa Linde (MS1) for winning the Sabres tickets!
