Frostburg State University Relay For Life Raises More Than $37,500 to Fight Cancer
Caregivers for cancer patients take their lap during Frostburg State University’s American Cancer Society Relay for Life on April 29. FSU’s Relay raised more than $37,500 so far to fight cancer.

Cancer survivors, caregivers and supporters helped raised more than $37,500, passing a goal of $35,000, at the annual Frostburg State University Relay For Life held Friday, April 29, in FSU’s Cordts Physical Education Center.

The FSU Relay has set a stretch goal of $40,000 to be raised through August. Proceeds benefit the American Cancer Society.

More than 400 participants on 45 teams have worked since the fall semester to raise the funds for the Disney-themed event, with many of the team names reflecting Disney stories.

Among the leading teams, Alpha Sigma Tau’s team, A Tau Story, raised the most with more than $6,400. The second-place team, Monsters Inc. from Alpha Phi Omega, raised more than $5,000; the Monsters University team raised nearly $4,000; and What’s Up Docs, the Pre-professional Medical Society, raised $2,500.

Donations can be accepted through August by visiting www.relayforlife.org/fsumd, or take donations to the Braddock House, 20 Braddock Road, in Frostburg. For more information, contact the FSU Office of Leadership and Civic Engagement at 301-687-4210.
