What can the commitment and vision of one Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Black Hills Health Care System (VABHHCS) employee make?

Enter Colleen Bowker, VABHHCS employee and her team of employees.

They assembled to accomplish a goal for the American Cancer Society. Together they designed a t-shirt with logo, and worked to accomplish a goal to sell as many shirts as possible in a few weeks time. 

Almost 300 T-shirts later with a profit of nearly $900.00 for the American Cancer Society, Colleen and her team accomplished their goal. 

Employees, Veterans, community organizations, and the general public came together to raise money for the American Cancer Society. “Tough Enough to Wear Pink” was their theme. Touched by or fighting cancer personally, knowing someone close to them touched by or fighting cancer or simply by their commitment to fight cancer they came together.

Employees, Veterans and the public posed for a picture at the Hot Springs VAMC, Fort Meade VAMC and Rapid City Community Based Outpatient Clinic. You can see these photos on Facebook.
