BLOOMSBURG—Bloomsburg University students will host the fourth annual Egg Hunt for Endometriosis Sunday, March 30, on Schuylkill Hall’s lawn to benefit the Endometriosis Association. The event is open to local children and the entrance fee is $2 per participant.

Local youngsters will take off in search of eggs filled with chocolate, toys, stuffed animals and more. The children will be split into three age groups: 7- to 12-year-olds at 2 p.m., newborns to 3-year-olds at 2:20 p.m., and 4- to 6-year-olds at 2:40 p.m. Participants may bring their own baskets or donate $1 to the Endometriosis Association to receive one that they may keep.

The goal of the Endometriosis Association is to find a cure for the hormone and immune system disease that affects millions of girls and women worldwide.

The Egg Hunt for Endometriosis is sponsored by Developing Aspiring Student Leaders (DASL) and the Center for Leadership and Engagement.
