Relay For Life Event Huge Success
Taking over the Stone Recreation Center March 11-12, 28 teams stayed in the building for 24 hours to raise $22,000 for the American Cancer Society Relay for Life event. Student organizations, faculty and staff pitched tents, threw sleeping bags and blankets on the floor, sat in living room furniture and rested while waiting for their turn to put in mileage on the walking track.
Every lap around the track was a step closer to a cure for cancer. Working under AmeriCorps*VISTA volunteer Juliann Schaffer's direction, event co-chairs Nicole Lowis '05 and Julie Bolitho '06 far exceeded expectations for the College's first foray into the cancer-fighting event.
Ritz says donations will be accepted through the end of March and event T-shirts are still available for $8. To make a donation or purchase a T-shirt, contact Juliann Schaffer at (989) 463-7971.
