MacDougall Lauded for Work with Outrun the Sun
Jonna Kane MacDougall, Assistant Dean for Advancement, has received the IUPUI Nan Bohan Community Engagement Award for her work with Outrun the Sun, Inc. a nonprofit organization she co-founded. She received the award at the Chancellor’s Employee Recognition Convocation on September 11. Outrun the Sun was established in 2004 to raise awareness of the risk factors of sun exposure and to raise funds for melanoma education and research. Since its inception, the organization has raised more than a quarter of a million dollars in support of its mission.
MacDougall is a member of the Class of 1986 who has worked at the law school for over 17 years. She was one of two inaugural recipients of the Bohan award, which was created to recognize “ongoing promotion of a philanthropic culture at IUPUI, deep dedication to the ideals of an engaged university, and demonstration of a strong personal commitment to serving campus and community.” IUPUI is also a sponsor of the annual Outrun the Sun Race Against Melanoma which is held on the campus.
