MACOMB, IL - - Western Illinois University marketing students are challenging the campus and Macomb communities to "Bounce for Breast Cancer Awareness" from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 19 on the Macomb campus.

For nine hours, 70 four-person teams will bounce in commercial-sized bounce houses on the campus quad, located behind Stipes Hall. Music, games and Chubby's food truck will be available.

The money raised will go toward Linda's Fund, which was created in memory of Linda Bainter in October 2008 by her son, Vice President for Advancement and Public Services Brad Bainter and his wife WIU Alumni Programs Director Amy Spelman. Linda's Fund offers financial support to women in west central Illinois who are diagnosed with breast cancer and are using the services of McDonough District Hospital.
