Lubbockites Help with Local Fundraisers

Whether it was walking or running, more than 1,000 people took steps to make a difference in the lives of others Saturday.

Hundreds of people participated in Texas Tech's 2nd annual Relay for Life Saturday night at the United Spirit Arena. The marathon event kicked off Saturday evening but will continue until 6:00 a.m. Sunday. Relay for Life is a national event sponsored by the American Cancer Society. Money raised at will benefit local cancer programs.

Also at Tech Saturday, about 400 people laced up their shoes in memory of a Texas Tech athlete and university graduate. The Courtney Nolen Memorial 5K run raised about $5,000 for female track scholarships. Nolen was a four year member of the Tech track team, but she was killed in a car accident just a few days after graduating in December 2000.

And Saturday morning, Mackenzie Park was filled with walkers who laced up to help fight a mysterious illness. Every week about 200 people are diagnosed nationwide with Multiple Sclerosis. Saturday's five mile walk raised money to fund programs that will help local families affected by MS. It's estimated that more than 950 families in West Texas are touched by this chronic disease.
