Quinnipiac University raised more than $76,000 during its Relay for Life, an organized community fundraising walk to raise money for the American Cancer Society, on April 19-20 at the TD Bank Sports Center.

The top three fundraising teams from Quinnipiac each raised more than $1,000 each; the first place team, Kate’s Krew, raised $3,233. More than 120 teams and 936 participants attended the event. Kate’s Krew was formed in support of Orange resident and Quinnipiac student Katie Winkle, a leukemia survivor. Winkle, a sophomore in the School of Nursing, was diagnosed with cancer in 2006 and was treated with six rounds of chemotherapy. Now in remission, Winkle served as event co-chair and has participated in multiple relay events.
