Some 97 teams representing more than 1,250 students, faculty, staff and families from the community joined to “take a bite out of cancer” during Salisbury University’s 2011 Relay For Life on April 29-30. By the conclusion of the weekend, they raised $76,832.55 for the American Cancer Society, and efforts continue until August.
During opening ceremonies, event co-chairs Maggie Sullivan and Marshall Boyd thanked SU President Janet Dudley-Eshbach for her commitment to making SU a Smoke-Free Campus. Brooke Mulford, a local 6-year-old who has battled neuroblastoma, also took the stage with her mother, Amy. After being named honorary co-chair, Brooke helped lead a survivors lap to kick off the event
SU’s Relay is consistently one of the top collegiate fundraising events nationwide and, since 2002, SU has raised more than $700,000 for the society. For more information or to donate visit the SU Relay Web site at www.relayforlife.org/su.
