In its most successful year so far, Frostburg State University’s annual Relay for Life on Friday, April 15, has raised nearly $51,000, making a total of more than $250,000 raised for the American Cancer Society since FSU’s Relay began 10 years ago.

In advance of Friday’s event, 825 people – students, faculty and staff – had registered to walk, with another 50 registering on-site that evening. A total of 61 teams participated, with the What’s Up Doc (Pre-Medical Society) team raising the most, $6,160. Relay for Life is the campus’ largest single volunteer effort each year.

“I cannot image being more proud of our students for their efforts this year,” said FSU President Jonathan Gibralter, who participated in the relay. “I have not seen as much engagement and activity as I saw this year as we walked around the track. Every club and organization that was present was working hard to raise money.”

While pledges are still being collected, the goal set for FSU’s Relay was $52,000, and organizers are still trying to reach a “stretch goal” of $54,000. To contribute, visit www.relayforlife.org/fsu or take donations to the Braddock House, 20 Braddock Road in Frostburg. For more information, call the FSU Office of Leadership and Civic Engagement at 301-687-4210.
