BU to host annual egg hunt

BLOOMSBURG— Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania will host the ninth annual Egg Hunt Endometriosis on Saturday, March 24, from 2-3:30 p.m. on upper campus.

The event is open to the public and costs $2 per person with proceeds benefiting Endometriosis Association. The egg hunt will be held in the field behind Monty's or, in the event of inclement weather, in Nelson Field House.

Age groups hunting for eggs will be divided into four timed sections: children ages 7 to 12 begin at 2 p.m., newborns to 3-year-olds at 2:20 p.m., 4 to 6-year-olds at 2:40 p.m. and BU students can participate at 3 p.m. Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Participants should bring a basket or a bag to hunt for eggs and arrive 30 minutes early to register.

Endometriosis is a chronic disease that causes pelvic pain and infertility. It affects millions of women and girls worldwide. The goal of the Endometriosis Association is to find a cure for this disease.

The event is sponsored by BU Center for Leadership Engagement (CLE) and Developing Ambitious Student Leaders (DASL)
