An anonymous leadership student, dressed up as Dr. Bear from Children’s National Hospital, poses in front of The Black & White room. Jan. 31 marks the start of SGA’s charity month, which consists of multiple events throughout February to raise money for Children’s Hospital. Key events include Vike-a-thon, Whitman Idol and the Icebreaker 5k.
“We do this to spread the awareness of the cause that we are fighting for — the whole point of charity month is to raise money,” SGA president Lucas Arulpragasam said. “I see the bear as a physical embodiment of the charity we are representing.”
