For the 15th straight year, sisters of the University of Dayton's Zeta Tau Alpha (ZTA) chapter held their Freefahl benefit concert to raise money for breast cancer awareness
and education, FlyerNews.com reports.
The event, which stands for Forever Reminding and Educating Every Female About Healthy Living, was held at the ArtStreet Amphitheater and brought out UD student bands and local musicians including Lauren Elyise and The Boys and OneSecond. Aside from the live entertainment, those in attendance were also able to partake in a dunk tank competition and a Yoplait yogurt eating contest.
All proceeds from the event will go to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation as it works to provide breast cancer "education and research," according to the foundation's website.
"We could never have put this important event on without the help of our ZTA sisters and fellow students at UD," Megan Hazelton, the ZTA publicity chair and event organizer, told the publication. "Hopefully we can help students learn about the disease and understand the importance of early detection."
Early detection is key to increasing how many people beat the disease. According to Cancer.org, stage 1 breast cancer patients have an 88 percent five-year survival rate.
