The Economics Club, Student Finance Association, Stephenson Hall Relay for Life Team, and Phi Gamma Nu combined forces to raise close to $1,500 for the American Cancer Society’s 2015 Relay for Life, held at the Memorial Field House from noon on Saturday, April 18, to 6:00 a.m. on Sunday, April 19.

According to the event’s website, the Relay raised over $28,000! Many students also volunteered their time to either walk in the relay or sell hot dogs to relay participants. 

The Department of Economics congratulates these clubs and participating students, faculty, and staff for their hard work raising awareness and funds to fight against cancer, as well as the overall effort by everyone involved in making this event a great success!
