Terry Scholars Fundraise for Cancer
The Terry Scholars foundation hosted a fundraising event in late March.
Students that are part of the Terry Scholars foundation at Texas State hosted an enchilada luncheon on March 30 at Lampasas. They raised money to benefit the Relay for Life and the American Cancer Society. Dinner included two enchiladas, refried beans, and Spanish rice.They received all the supplies from an H-E-B donation and had been planning for this event for almost two months. Co-captain of the Terry Scholars Rely for Life team, Katlyn Delp, says that cancer hits close to home to a lot of the Terry Scholars, especially to her.
“It holds a real personal note for me, my mom had cancer three times within three years and my cousin was just diagnosed with terminal cancer so the statistics are like 60 percent of Americans will be touched with cancer one way or another and it’s the number one death causing illness in the United States”

It is the second year Terry Scholars have hosted this event. Their families join them and all money gained during the fundraising will be donated to the Relay for Life foundation.
“If we can pair up with Relay for life, which supports the American Cancer society to somehow put a drop in the bucket to find a cure then we at Texas State can make a huge impact.”

Relay for Life cancer charity walk event will be held on May 2nd for San Marcos, Kyle, and Buda.
