MBA students plan fundraising walk

The Odette School of Business’ MBA Society will hold its third annual Steps for Sue fundraising walk in honour of the late MBA secretary Sue Skrobiak on July 15.

The event will raise funds to benefit the Hospice of Windsor and Essex County, an organization that is important to the Skrobiak family. Skrobiak died in November 2018 after an almost 40-year career as a secretary in the Odette School of Business.

Event organizer Mikayla Paesano says she is still beloved and remembered at Odette: “We are looking forward to honouring Sue’s memory again this year with her family, friends, and MBA alumni that had the chance to know her.”

Steps for Sue will be held at Malden Park on Saturday at 10 a.m., starting at the visitor’s centre. The walk will last approximately one hour, followed by a social hour honouring Skrobiak with stories, refreshments, and snacks. All alumni, faculty, staff, and students are welcome to participate and can register or donate on the Steps for Sue website.
