The Run with Sandy is an event that was developed in honor of Sandy Mitchell. Sandy taught biology at Western for 28 years and lost her battle with breast cancer in May 2017. She was highly revered and loved by Western students and faculty alike. Sandy was an avid runner. This run was created to keep her memory alive, as well as to honor all those who fight the battle of cancer.
