The spring Relay for Life, sponsored by the Clarkson University Physical Therapy Club, raised a record-breaking $34,703 for the American Cancer Society.
The amount is the most ever raised by the club, which has totaled more than $200,000 in donations since it began Relay For Life at Clarkson eight years ago.
The relay also broke its record for the most teams (56) and the most participants ever (695) -- about 100 more than last year.
