TALLAHASSEE, Fla. –
Florida State University head cross country coach, Bob Braman and the cross country team, presented a check worth $2,000 to the United Way of the Big Bend Thurday afternoon to help the Red Cross in the relief efforts in New York. The money was raised by the cross country team when they ran a total of 140 miles across Florida in the Across the State Relay on September 7th.
“We’re really pleased to be involved with the disaster relief efforts that are going forth right now at the FSU athletic department,” said Braman. “It’s one of many community service projects that our athletic department is involved in. A 140-mile run is just one small way we can help out.”
The FSU athletic department will continue its money raising efforts with the United Way on Saturday, September 29th, when donation bins will be placed at the entrances to Doak Campbell Stadium during the football game versus Wake Forest. Fans can make monetary donations at any gate of the stadium prior to kickoff with collection points identified by columns of red, white and blue balloons.
