Relay for Life at Saint A's raises more than $90,000
GOFFSTOWN - Close to 1,000 Saint Anselm College students participated in a fundraiser to raise money for cancer research.
Relay for Life kicked off Friday night with an emotional opening ceremony. Students shared stories of losing a parent to cancer, others whose family members are now survivors.
Kris Wilson-Ezequelle works in Health Services at the school. She’s also a cancer survivor and served as Grand Marshal. Wilson-Ezequelle took the ceremonial first lap around the track to a standing ovation from all of the teams who raised money for the event.
“These students are an amazing group of people that are caring and reach out to other people and for them to honor me is ... there aren't any words to say,” Wilson-Ezequelle said.
At last check, the students had already raised more than $90,000 for the American Cancer Society.
