Relay For Life one of nation’s best

The annual student-run Relay For Life event, held March 3 and 4 at Bushyhead Track, has raised more than $311,000. The initial event raised $288,668 but donations were accepted through Aug. 1.

The total was the second highest amount raised per capita nationwide among universities with enrollment of 10,000-15,999.

More than 2,000 participants walked around the track in March to raise money for the American Cancer Society.

The national, overnight team event is designed to celebrate cancer survivorship and raise money for cancer research and programs.
