VSU hosts relay for life

March 20, 2007

By Ashley Dudley

Valdosta - Valdosta State University students are "giving a flip" to help fight cancer.

VSU will host Relay for Life on April 13th on its front campus.

Students gathered in Palms Quad Tuesday afternoon to collecting flip flops and donations to help raise money and awareness for the event.

"We've got other teams that are actually performing in the relay selling pop sickles and snow cones and things like that trying to collect money and raise money for the actual relay. We're also taking applications for our bachelorette auction we're having this Thursday night," says Travis Tubbs, the VSU Relay for Life Chairman.

So far, they have raised about five thousand dollars for the American Cancer Society.

This is the first time that VSU has hosted a Relay for Life, which focuses on bringing together those who are affected by cancer in the community.

    Organizations, churches, and others across southwest Georgia now have summer feeding programs available. While most students are happy to be out of school for the summer, some go hungry when they don't have two guaranteed meals that they would normally receive from their schools.
