(Alexandra Plancarte/TCU360) About 2,000 people gathered in the campus commons Sunday afternoon to participate in the 6th annual Frogs for the Cure music video.There were 34 different groups in attendance including sports teams, community members, and breast cancer survivors.One breast cancer survivor said she felt welcomed and encouraged by those at the event.“I’m very excited because I’m a part of this big family,” two-year survivor Lupe Sanchez said. “I don’t know one single person here, but it doesn’t matter. We are all survivors by the grace of God.”Hattie Lankford, a first-year student on the women’s basketball team, said the team was excited to work with members of the Fort Worth community.“TCU basketball is all about giving back to the community,” Lankford said. “We are all about empowering people and if we can do anything to show our love and support, we do all that we can.”Senior Lisa Thompson, a member of TCU Rangers, said that the event had a large impact on Fort Worth.“I think TCU is such a well known part of the Fort Worth community and increasing awareness at TCU helps spread across Fort Worth,” Thompson said.Frogs for the Cure chair and breast cancer survivor Ann Louden has been instrumental in spreading that awareness since the first music video five years ago.“The TCU partnership with Komen is so important,” Louden said. “Students are impacted by this cause, they have family members that have been diagnosed, or they know someone who has been affected by breast cancer. “Louden said that all who participated were beneficial to the cause.“To give them a chance to be empowered is important; I can’t imagine doing this without everybody,” Louden said.Since TCU’s partnership with Susan G. Komen in 2005, half a million dollars have been raised.The music video will be shown for the first time at the West Virginia game on Oct. 29. Frogs for the Cure.
