On Saturday April 12th , a dedicated band of library students joined in the UB Relay for Life event to raise money for the American Cancer Society. The Relay, an overnight event, was held in UB Alumni Arena and involved one hundred and twenty teams and over eleven hundred people from both our campus and the Buffalo community.
Our eleven member team raised $1566.85, making us the 7th team overall in funds collected. Alongside donations, we raised additional money at the event by selling gently used books, magazines, and baked goods. A good time was had by all the members of our team and we were one of only a handful of teams to have a team member walking through the entire night. Thanks to everyone who supported us.
