Wrestling and Mary Kay Join Forces to Fight Cancer

MBU women’s wrestling team members continue their dedication to serving others — with lipstick.


The women’s wrestling team joined Mary Kay to find the cure for breast cancer recently in the North Hall women’s dormitory.

Nine freshmen and sophomore girls received facials and make-overs while learning about how to support the cause.

“For the month of October we support the research to end breast cancer and also to end domestic violence,” Mary Kay Senior Sales Director Ana Farrell said. “So, for the month of October we ask our clients to round up their purchase to the next dollar and that is donated to the foundation. As the director we match that fund and we send it to the Mary Kay Foundation.”

The learning did not stop with just breast cancer awareness but the students also learned life lessons.

“We came to do a pampering session with some students. We were invited by one of the students who happened to be the hostess and she invited her friends,” said Farrell. “We came to not only pamper them but educate them about skin care, how to take care of themselves and also being self-reliant.”

This was a first for some of the student wrestlers.

“My favorite part of today was putting makeup on myself because I have never done it before,” said Adriana Pena, a freshman criminal justice major.
