Many thanks to those who participated and assisted with the 2017 Flax to Vax Race + BBQ on Saturday. Heather Lynch and Kurt Bretsch won for the faculty and Mark Nepf and Ashley Cohen won for the students. Overall the top five faculty times beat the top ten student times!
With the help of the SoMAS community, the Graduate Student Club raised $282 for the Flax to Vax Fund Race which will go towards replenishing the Okubo Scholar fund. Bob Cerrato, representing Dana Hall, was the winner of the fund race! Thanks to Larry Swanson, Mark Wiggins, Lesley Thorne, Kamazima Lwiza, Kurt Bretsch, and Bob Cerrato for agreeing to participate in the fund race and to everyone who made donations!
Students, start training now so next year you’ll be able to beat the faculty!
Thanks to Mark Wiggins and all the students who helped setup and take down the event.
