The 7th annual Relay for Life at Drake University was held at the Knapp Center last Friday. While exact numbers are currently unknown, Colleges Against Cancer co-President Robin Sautter said that over 600 participants registered online, and she believes at least 500 actually attended the event. Current estimates of money raised are around $33,000. The team also met several other goals including total teams, the participation of a faculty team and the amount of sponsorship they were able to acquire.

“Overall, we were extremely happy with this year’s Relay for Life,” Sautter said. “We received quite a bit of positive feedback from students…Colleges Against Cancer is excited to already start planning the next one.”
