The 2008 American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life was held again this year, June fifth & sixth. With a thunderous applause the evening was kicked off by cancer survivors doing their lap, proudly wearing their purple t-shirts. With emotions at their peak, the greater group joined in to begin walking the track for the remaining eighteen hours.
It is with pleasure that Antioch University joins this group of devoted individuals each year; walking in memory of family and friends who have survived this dreaded disease or have valiantly lost the battle.
Our team consists of ten persons either employees of Antioch, friends and/or relatives. Our offices are represented by Jan Fiderio and daughter Holly (Dept of Communications), Susan Howard and Marie Koski (Financial Aid), Suzanne Koulalis (Registrar’s Office), Susan Psaropulos (Admissions), Dottie Shuteran (Student Accounts), Wendy Sampson (prior Antioch employee) and team captain Natalie Milano and daughter Angela (Human Resources).
The team raised a total of $1538.00 through bake sales and donations; these funds went toward the grand total for the Greater Keene area of $133,542.06.
The calendar is scheduled once again for Relay for Life 2009.
