GRCC Nursing faculty Victoria Meyers described the event:

“Relay was an incredible experience for all of us. To say we were not exhausted would be a lie, but it was a good exhaustion. The stories and people we met were so humbling and uplifting. 

Our student Flip Mulliner won the Miss Relay contest (men dressed in drag collecting money for an hour – he looked fantastic as a Menopausal Princess and collected the most money in an hr of $108. 75!)”
