A group of Tiger runners put their legs to good use, raising money and awareness about suicide prevention. Senior Dominic Pasquale and nine other cross country runners organized a 24-hour relay to benefit the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. Not only did they run for 24 hours, they raised nearly $6,000 and ran a total of 206 miles!
Beginning at 4 p.m. June 19, the 10 runners ran the first lap together. Then, one runner was always on the track running through June 20 at 4 p.m. when they took the final laps together.
Through a GoFundMe page and generous community members, they far exceeded their orginal goal of $3,500.
Great job Tigers!
