Dozens of WVU Cancer Institute faculty, staff and healthcare providers enjoyed a variety of soups, desserts and beverages this past Friday in the atrium for a worthy cause. The “Souper Day” lunch was organized by the Cancer Crushers, a Cancer Institute team at the Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center that is fundraising for the American Cancer Society Monongalia County Relay For Life in June.
The special lunch raised more than $500 for Relay, which is scheduled June 8-9 at Westwood Middle School Track in Morgantown. Cynthia Hartley, a cancer survivor, made and donated the MBRCC cake for the lunch. The Cancer Institute and WVU Medicine will host a kickoff rally for Relay For Life on March 14 from 2 to 4 p.m. in the Cancer Center Atrium.
