Columbia College employees crush cancer
Friday, December 12, 2008

(COLUMBIA, Mo.) -- The Columbia College Relay for Life team has added a "Crush CANcer" campaign to this year's fundraising efforts. The team hopes to reach its 10-year goal of $100,000 raised in the fight against cancer.

Faculty, staff, students and the Columbia community can get involved by dropping off their empty aluminum cans each Friday at 5 p.m. at the parking lot on the corner of 10th and Rogers Streets on the Columbia College campus. Members of the Relay for Life team will be on hand to crush the cans.

Last year, the Columbia College Relay for Life team raised $15,472, a team best. The team's nine-year total stands at $84,170. Previous fundraising efforts include garage sales, book sales, silent auctions and athletic events.

For more information about the Crush CANcer campaign, contact Tery Donelson, assistant vice president for enrollment management at Columbia College, at (573) 875-7490 or tldonelson@ccis.edu.

Columbia College, a private, nonprofit institution founded in 1851 in Columbia, Mo., educates 25,000 students each year and has more than 61,000 alumni worldwide.
