Colin Bowles, who majored in Communication/Electronic Media, is a sportscaster at Lafayette’s WLFI-TV. In honor of his mother, who died of breast cancer in 2014, he has formed a team for next Saturday’s Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure and is building an organization called My Eyes Are Up Here.

The group will raise money for the Indiana Women in Need Foundation, which helps women and men with breast cancer by paying for important non-medical services, such as child care, home maintenance, meal preparation and fitness classes.

Read about him in the Indianapolis Star and the Lafayette Journal & Courier, and learn more about the campaign at Bowles’ website.
