CI Relay for life

More than 316 participants and 24 teams raised over $23,000 – and more importantly awareness of issues surrounding cancer - at the 4th Annual CI Relay for Life held on March 27-28 in the South Quad, more than doubling participation from last year.

Gregory Sawyer, Vanessa Bahena, Jesse Molina, Raudel Banuelos, Linda Covarrubias, Dannie Fox, Jason Hughes and Facilities Services, Ray Porras, Zeta Pi Omega, Dave Nirenberg and Peter Maher of University Auxiliary Services, Inc., Berry Man Produce, Siblings Bakery, Supreme Bean Coffee, the students of Carden School, Cove Bookstore and Nancy Gill.
