College of Business and Economics – Well Represented at Relay for Life

On April 30th, UW Whitewater held its Fourth Annual Relay for Life Event to raise money for the American Cancer Society. Twenty-nine teams from campus, local area businesses, and local residents participated in the event.Β  The event raised a total of over $25,000 for the American Cancer Society to support research, support patient services, to assist in early detection and treatment, and to educate people about cancer and how to prevent it.

The keynote speaker was Cassidy Schmidt, a UW-Whitewater senior who battled cancer while completing her education. Cassidy discussed her fight against this terrifying disease and discussed why she is involved in Relay.

The lights were dimmed and the room went quite at 10:00 pm for the Luminaria Ceremony. This is a time set aside to honor those who have beaten cancer or who are currently fighting cancer and to remember those people whom cancer has taken. Luminary bags were placed along the track and lit by lights and the walkers walked silently for an hour.

There were many activities, games and entertainment throughout the night. Some of the highlights were a fashion show sponsored by Maurice’s, a Tug-O-War contest, DJ music, Milwaukee rap artist β€œ4-0”, and the ever popular β€œDude Looks Like a Lady Contest.”

The College of Business and Economics was represented by The General Management Organization (GMO) captained by Richard Hoffman; the American Marketing Association (AMA) captained by Rachel Seitz, and Collegiate Entrepreneur’s Organization (CEO) captained by Reed Schmidt.

Reed was so committed to Relay and what it represents that he walked the entire 12 hours of the event.

The C. K. Cruisers team won top honors in fund raising. The 9 member team was comprised of CoBE instructors, staff, and students as well as the pastor from St. John’s Church and a student representing Communications Disorders:

  • James Bronson, Department Chair, Management – CoBE
  • Peggy Kuchan, Academic Staff, Instructor – CoBE
  • Christine Kutz, Academic Staff, MBA Advisor – Team Captain – CoBE
  • Char Anderson, ADA – CoBE
  • Meghan Jensen, MBA Marketing and Management – CoBE

  • Kalyn Maxfield, Finance and Economics – CoBE
  • Pastor John Rossman, St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church – Whitewater
