This summer the Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition (MBCC) will hold its annual Against the Tide swim, walk, run, and kayak fundraising events for breast cancer prevention. Former Lasell student Courtney Taylor has been working as a Special Events and Outreach intern for the MBCC, a cause that for her hits close to home.
Taylor graduated from Lasell in May of 2012 with a bachelor’s degree in marketing and in September of 2012 she started interning for the MBCC.

For as long as I can remember, I have loved the game of baseball. In the batting order of most important things in my life, family would be in the leadoff spot, friends in the two hole, and baseball would be batting third just ahead of cats in the cleanup spot (I said it, I like cats, specifically my cat Pesky who is named after Red Sox legend Johnny Pesky).
