Despite rainy weather, Chi Phi fraternity raised over $9,000 for the American Cancer Society Saturday through its annual Dan Boone Memorial 5K race. The donations raised thus far exceed last year’s total by $1,000.

“I hope to be able to increase this amount over the next couple of weeks,” says economics and business major Steven Chapman, a senior from Wayne, N.J., who organized the fundraiser. “I would like to thank everyone who contributed to this worthy cause. Next year’s 5K will hopefully be even more successful.”

The large turnout of runners included the family and friends of Dan Boone, a member of Lafayette’s Class of 1995, who passed away two years ago after a battle with cancer. The Phi Gamma Delta fraternity and Pi Beta Phi and Kappa Kappa Gamma sororities contributed a significant amount of runners and donations.

The fraternity hosted a barbeque for the runners after the race.
