Virginia Tech Relay for Life reached $100,000 this weekend, making it the second school in the country to hit six figures. Tech currently sits at $103,255 with 1,971 people already signed up in 292 groups.
Relay’s official kickoff event was last Wednesday and different fundraising opportunities will continue throughout the next few months until the actual event takes place on April 20 on the Drillfield.
But with two months left to raise money, Relay has goals much higher than $100,ooo; according to it’s Facebook page, the goal is to hit the $750,000 mark.
Next up for Relay is a profit-sharing night at Benny Marzano’s this Wednesday; 15 percent of all procedes will go directly to Relay.
