Frostburg State University Relay for Life Raises Record Amount, More Than $56,000
05/01/2012

In its most successful year to date, Frostburg State University’s annual Relay for Life on Friday, April 27, has raised $56,562, making a total of more than $300,000 raised for the American Cancer Society since FSU’s Relay began 11 years ago.

In advance of Friday’s event, more than 800 people and 61 teams – students, faculty and staff – had registered to walk. The pre-medical society, What’s Up Docs?, raised the most money at $8,758. Relay for Life is the campus’ largest single volunteer effort each year.

“I am incredibly proud of our university and especially of our students, who plan for this all year,” said FSU President Jonathan Gibralter, who also participated in the relay. “They work incredibly hard to make it happen, and you can see how seriously they take it and how successful they have been.”

Pledges are still being collected to reach the $60,000 goal. 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. -end-
