Comma Commandos for a Cause raise $1200 for MSOn April 13, faculty and students from English participated in the 2013 Birmingham Walk MS—and more than doubled their goal by raising $1,227 in donations. Team Captain Judy Wilson, along with Lonzell Wilson, Jaci Wells, Jeff Bacha, Ashley Burge, Jessica Bonner, Michele Moore, and Cassandra Ellis represented the department with t-shirts featuring the team name, UAB English: Comma Commandos for a Cause.
According to Jaci Wells, "Most of us decided to participate because of a personal connection. I think nearly all of us know someone living with MS. The Walk was a great chance for us to honor those we know who are battling MS and to help raise money and awareness of the disease. Also, we had a great time walking together! We’re already planning to make the Walk MS a standing tradition."
