Assistant health-sciences professor Rochelle Tucker (above l) accepted a dare from her students to dance to a Michael Jackson song before the class on Oct. 20—dressed as superhero Captain Condom. It’s one of several dares she accepted in a bid to help the Faculty of Health Sciences keep its lead in the national A Dare to Remember fundraising campaign. Run by the Stephen Lewis Foundation, the campaign supports grandmothers, women and children living with HIV/AIDS in Africa. Faculty dean John O’Neil (above r) accepted a dare to dress as a clown. The faculty has raised $12,000 so far. Dare week officially ends Oct. 25 but dares and contributions will be accepted until World AIDS day Dec. 1.
