Relay for Life was held this past weekend on Saturday April, 16 on the Quad. Thirteen teams participated in this six-hour event, hosting booths and events as well as walking around the green. The event broke the goal of $10,000 and raised $11,718 dollars for cancer research. According to online tallies, Delta Gamma raised the most per club with a total of $3,240, followed by the joint team of Lawrence University Volleyball and Lawrence University Women’s Basketball, which raised $1,365. Relay for Life initially began in 1985 in Tacoma, Washington, when one person, Dr. Gordy Klatt, ran his own fundraiser for 24 hours straight. Since then, Relay has held events across the globe. Lawrence’s own abridged version of Relay occurs annually.
