cv_39_285746916099968953

SMU Relay for Life 2015, April 10-11, raises approximately $176,400 benefitting the American Cancer Society.

SMU held its 12th annual Relay for Life on Saturday, April 10-11, from 6:30 p.m.-11:30 a.m. During the overnight fundraising walk, tables and tents filled the Boulevard as more than 1,500 students and community members came out to raise awareness and funds in the fight against cancer.

The event raised approximately $176,400 benefitting the American Cancer Society, well exceeding the goal of $158,000. Two standouts in the fundraising efforts were the SMU Kappa Alpha Theta team and SMU senior Katie Schaible.

The Thetas topped the leader board for team fundraising this year, collecting more than $38,761. After a junior in the SMU Theta pledge class was diagnosed with cancer during the Fall 2014 term, the Relay for Life movement became the perfect platform for the sorority to make a difference in the fight against cancer. The entire chapter actively came together to support her, raise funds and bring awareness to the fight.

SMU senior Katie Schaible raised over $100,000 for the American Cancer Society during her four years

SMU senior Katie Schaible raised more than $100,000 for the American Cancer Society during her four years at SMU.

For her fourth consecutive year, Katie Schaible made the individual fundraiser leader board. Schaible truly embodies the spirit of Relay for Life. After losing her father to melanoma at the age of 14, Schaible joined Relay for Life during her freshmen year and has raised over $100,000 for the American Cancer Society since.

Prior to the on-campus event, SMU Relay For Life won the title of number one college Relay in an online event on February 23-25, 2015. Competing against the top 25 American Cancer Society college Relays for Life, SMU Relay for Life took the top spot raising $45,534. Collectively the online event raised $315,654 benefiting the American Cancer Society.

“The SMU community rose to new heights with the unbelievable success they had during the Number One Relay Challenge,” said Rebecca Wood, staff partner for the Relay. “I am so proud of the student-led committee and the community as a whole.”
