Warner Raises over $10,000
LSU Eunice’s Respiratory Care program coordinator, Kathleen Warner, raised over $10,000 for a scholarship in her mentor’s name by riding 100 kilometers on July 20 as part of the world-wide Rapha Women’s 100 cycling challenge. Warner did the ride and created the scholarship in memory of her first instructor at LSU Eunice and then her co-worker and mentor in the Respiratory Care program, the late Ed Calloway. Her goal for the scholarship was $5,500 but after one month of fundraising, Warner brought in close to $11,000. “The response is truly a reflection of the kind of persona and teacher Ed was,” said Warner. “People who knew him are the ones who have made this happen.” Warner, who has been a cyclist for 15 years, rode the 100km on a round-trip ride to the outskirts of Kinder and back to campus. Women all over the world joined Warner in the Rapha challenge, riding 100km on July 20th and telling their stories on the Rapha website.
