Annual Variety Show ACTivate the Cure Set for Sat., Oct. 16
Greenhills School will present ACTivate the Cure on Saturday, October 16 at 8:00 p.m. in the Campbell Center. ACTivate, an annual variety show that benefits breast cancer research and patient care at the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center, will feature performances by student and faculty dancers, singers, instrumentalists and actors. This year’s theme is “The Perfect Fit.” An art show and silent auction featuring student and professional work will take place between 6-7:30 in the entrance to the Campbell Center.
Co-producers and directors Diana Rosenzweig ’11 and Catherine Cypert ’12 both feel that the cause is close to their hearts. “This year, we’re putting a big emphasis on what the show is really about,” says Rosenzweig. “I think that it’s important for the community to know exactly where their money is going, and I’m hoping that a video of interviews with doctors and patients and a strong emphasis on the theme will bring about a higher level of awareness.”
“Cancer affects not only the patient, but also his or her loved ones,” says Cypert. “ACTivate the Cure spreads awareness about breast cancer and raises funds to help stop the disease while at the same time supporting cancer patients and their families. I’d like to be a part of that support.”
