Hello again friends & family!

GlobeMed at Columbia has some very exciting news! We have entered into the Johnson & Johnson Be Vital Challenge. Our video entry features chapter members from GlobeMed at Columbia and footage from our 2012 GROW trip.

Watching and voting for our video will put us in the running to win $10,000. This entire amount will go towards our HIV prevention and maternal health project in northern Uganda, helping us achieve almost half of our fundraising goal for the entire year! 

Voting is as easy as 1, 2, 3!

1) Watch, rate, and vote for our video submission here:

2) Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter

3) Share our posts and invite all your friends to join the page! There will be new infographics posted throughout the week through our social media outlets. Some are included in this email!

You can vote everyday until Monday, October 29th at 11:59 pm. Please post a comment on the page as well, so we can get more visibility on the website! We are up against student groups from universities that are much bigger than Columbia, so we need all the help we can get. Spread the word today and help us make a sustaianble difference in the live of others!

In solidarity,
GlobeMed at Columbia
