Sam Houston State University is honored to bring back the 4th Annual Kats for the Cause initiative during the fall 2010 semester. This cause will benefit breast cancer education and awareness. Our mission is to create awareness, change attitudes, and commit others to action. Various student organizations, faculty and staff members from the Sam Houston campus have organized a variety of activities and ways to get involved in supporting these efforts. On Saturday, November 6, 2010 we will host the 4th Annual Kats for the Cause 5k walk/run and Pink Out at the Sam Houston State football game against McNeese State. If you are interested in becoming involved with this initiative or attending any events, please contact a committee member listed on this page.
