Final Push for Fundraising!

July 26, 2019

Dear Sackler Community!


Today is the final day for fundraising for the 2019 Relays and the Student Enrichment Fund! Photos from Relays have finally come in, and they tell the tale of valiant warriors on the field of battle! Highlights include

  • MD-PhD's Jake Klickstein's faceplant to cross the plane of the goal in the obstacle course relay
  • Micro's Juan Hernandez-Bird needing medical attention for bruised hands after a heroic tug-of-war effort
  • Neuro's Sammi Howard absolutely DOMINATING with a sub-6 minute mile in 95-degree heat
  • CMDB's Rae Daly holding out in a 6-v-1 last woman standing against merciless dodgeball enemies
  • Immunogenetics upsetting Team MD-PhD, the reigning tug-of-war champs, in the first round of play, and then going on to WIN THEIR FIRST RELAYS

We are SO CLOSE to our fundraising goal, and with your help we hope to hit $4,000 by 11pm tonight! 


Please spread the word about donating to Relays and the Student Enrichment Fund, which supports student educational enrichment through conference and workshop attendance.


Thank you!


The 2019 Relays Organizing Committee Ramesh Govindan (MD-PhD/CMDB), Ashlee Junier (Genetics), Alyssa DiLeo (Neuroscience), and Kate Sulka (Immunology)

Post-Relays Update!

July 22, 2019

Hello from the 2019 Relays organizers! We wanted to take a quick second to thank everyone who has donated to Relays and the Student Enrichment Fund!


Despite the heat, Relays was a huge success this year with a first place finish by Immuno-Genetics, followed by MD-PhD, Neuro, Micro, and CMDB! A big thanks to everyone who came out!


We’re still shy of our crowdfunding goal by about $1,700, so please share the word about Relays and the Student Enrichment Fund to your family, friends, colleagues, and random strangers on the street!
