HC: Why did you want to be part of Love Your Melon?

AP: I wanted to be a part of the Love Your Melon Crew because I wanted to be a part of an organization that understands that the children battling cancer are facing things that I, along with many others, could not bare. I loved the idea of helping put a smile on children’s faces and making a difference by being their “super hero”. As a crew we visit hospitals, donate hats and spend time with families who are facing this tragedy of childhood cancer.

HC: Where can student’s get those lovely hats?

AP: Students can get a hat by preorder from www.loveyourmelon.com. The company releases products incrementally - students can be added to the email list to receive information on when products will be released, and also what colors/styles will be released. At check-out, students may click to support the University of Denver Crew. The more support the DU Crew gets, the more hats we are able to give away to local families and the more hospital visits we get to be a part of. 

Make sure to keep an eye out for this awesome crew, and incredible cause! Thanks for bringing awareness and support to something so near and dear to many hearts.
