Queens College Raises Money and Awareness for EB
Flushing, N.Y. - The Queens College softball team in conjunction with the Queens College S.A.A.C. and Athletic Department raised over $800 for the Dystrophic Epidermolysis Bullosa Research Association of America.
Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) is a rare skin disease that causes blistering all over the body with the slightest bit of friction. The son of Rob Twible, an athletic administrator at the College was born with this painful disease in 2002.
In addition to collecting flat donations for the cause, the department sold t-shirts and held a 50/50 raffle to raise awareness and money.
“It could not have been a more perfect day,” commented Chenelle Geoffroy, Queens College S.A.A.C. President and a member of the women’s soccer team. “It was senior day for softball and the weather was great, so we were able to draw a big crowd and raise over $800 for EB.”
