Saint Mary’s Relay for Life raises more than $17,500

WINONA, Minn. — On Friday and Saturday, March 15-16, the Saint Mary’s University community participated in the Relay for Life. More than 175 students, faculty, and staff came together to celebrate and remember those who have defeated cancer, those currently battling cancer, and those who have lost their lives to this disease. A record 22 cancer survivors were in attendance. The event raised more than $17,500 for the American Cancer Society and donations are still coming in. Team members spent the night walking around SMU’s indoor track from dusk to dawn to represent the 24-hour fight against cancer.
