On Sunday, April 15, Waynesburg University held its annual Mini-Relay for Life event on Waynesburg University’s campus. The event was held from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., and raised more than $23,000 for cancer research.

The event, a joint effort of the University and the American Cancer Society, included typical Relay for Life events including a Luminaria Ceremony and a Survivors’ Lap.  Mini-Relay for Life consisted of student run organizations and committees coming together to benefit those with cancer. Teams split their members into groups to walk for an hour at a time, making sure a representative of each team was on the course at all times.

Waynesburg University’s Student Activities Board raised the most funds with a total of $2,594.22.  WCYJ-FM, the University’s student-run radio station, came close with its efforts totaling at $2,180.36 and Waynesburg University’s Public Relations Student Society of America Chapter was able to raise $2,048.69.
