Relay for Life tops $100,000 for charity

MAGS Relay for Life team celebrated their amazing fundraising efforts yesterday with a team photo and were greeted with the news that they had raised more than $100,000 for the Cancer Society.
Students took part in the sponsored run at Millennium Institute on the North Shore on March 10 & 11, with 292 MAGS students running a total of 25,000 laps. Their total raised now sits at $100,294.30 and is by far the highest among schools across the country.
The Cancer Society is making a promotional video featuring MAGS students to inspire other schools to match their efforts.
MAGS’ Relay for Life organiser Alayna Pulham says because of the students’ impressive efforts,16 chemistry/science students who made an outstanding contribution would be offered the opportunity to go on a small tour of the cancer research centre to have a look at where some of that fundraising money goes.
