SLU PT StuCo Raises Money for Relay For Life

On Saturday, April 1st, SLU PT StuCo and others from the Saint Louis University community fought back against a disease that affects everyone in some way - cancer. More than $139,000 was raised by SLU Relay for Life for the American Cancer Society, with StuCo raising $1,396. All of the proceeds raised by Relay for Life go to the American Cancer Society in order to fund a nationwide cause to put an end to cancer.

SLU PT Students Anthony Lorenger (DPT Class of 2022) and Clarine Stephens (DPT Class of 2019) were part of the Event Leadership team and on the same committee that helped coordinate Saturday's event. This is the 14th year for Relay on SLU's campus. Over the years, Saint Louis University has raised more than $1.9 million as part of this fundraiser, benefitting cancer research, patient care, recovery programs, education and more. Funds even help our local community. We have the American Cancer Society Hope Lodge in St. Louis, which provides free lodging and transportation to cancer patients and their care givers while they are in treatment.

"Celebrate. Remember. Fight Back." SLU's Relay for Life event takes time to celebrate those who have been affected by cancer, remember those we've lost, and motivate others to finish strong. During the Fight Back Ceremony, Anthony shared his story as a survivor during his speech.
