Hopping 4 A Cure really taught me how to speak professionally with others and develop connections with a variety of different people. It also gave me a sense of fulfillment that I was making something of my own while still being a student. I am so happy to be working with them for a long time!

Hopping 4 A Cure has been a great experience for me, because I was able to develop many skills that I will be able to implement in my future, I got to meet many young, determined, and like-minded individuals, and I had the opportunity to positively contribute to my community and campus.
