The Penn State Relay For Life completed its annual fundraiser on Saturday, April 25 with a grand total of $41,519.93.

The event was done virtually this year due to the coronavirus, however many teams still participated in the event remotely.

The aptly named “FUNdraising Committee” raised the most money of any team with $5,107, while Phi Delta Kappa brought in $3,907.

Meghan McNicholas, the Event Executive Director, raised the most of any person with $5,739.

Relay For Life is a national organization on the fight against cancer. All proceeds from the Penn State relay and other events will benefit the American Cancer Society.
