Triangle, Todd top fundraisers

The Triangle Freethought Society, an FFRF chapter, participated June 3-4 in the American Cancer Society Relay for Life event in Raleigh N.C. “Our 28-member team of freethinkers took home the prize for being the top fundraiser, raising over $23,000 for cancer research and prevention,” said Amy Glenn. “We were also recognized for having the top individual fundraiser, Todd Stiefel ($10,255), and for winning, perhaps ironically, the ‘Most Team Spirit’ award.”

Teams had to keep a walker/runner on the track all night. TFS displayed “hope lanterns” in memory of Paul “Jody” Gaylor Jr. and in honor of Christopher Hitchens throughout the night, and their photos were featured during the luminaria slide show. Amy adds, “We had a phenomenal team this year. I have no doubt that we had the most fun of any team there! We’re looking forward to doing it again next year.”
