The Purple PRoject team won the Spirit Award at the SIUE Relay for Life event on April 13 and came in third place for the
most funds raised! It was 12 hours of fun FUNDraising for the American Cancer Society, and for a first-time team, PRSSA did an outstanding job!
PRSSA member Sarah Rohner was the team captain. She coordinated all the team fundraisers, setting up the campsite and participating in all the crazy games throughout the 12-hour event. Dodgeball tournaments, hula hoop contests and frozen shirt relays are just a few of the activities the team participated in to earn spirit points.
Relay for Life is a great opportunity for the SIUE PRSSA Chapter to show their support for such a worthy cause. It’s also a great way to build relationships – a foundational precept for the public relations industry. The Chapter has already registered for next year’s Relay for Life, and I hope we will get the entire Chapter to join us next year.
In the meantime, pull up a chair and let’s talk.
