Relay For Life of Kansas State University started off the year with a major setback, but with amazing leadership and great ingenuity they still made a big impact. Relay For Life of K-State was combined with the Riley County Relay. Relay For Life of K-State wanted to host an event on campus to garnish support and help raise awareness for the event, so they created Knock Out Cancer, a knockout basketball tournament. To play, everyone had to register online through a website called crowdrise.com.
The event did an amazing job of incentivizing people to join the tournament with multiple give away contests and tabling events.
At the event there was a lot of food and a wide variety of prizes donated to the event from local vendors for participants to enjoy. In the end, the event raised close to $2,400 and brought a new way to fight against cancer to their campus. This event is a great idea for a fall fundraiser to engage your campus early in the year!
