With the help of the SoMAS community, the Graduate Student Club accepted donations for the Flax to Vax Fund Race which go towards replenishing the Okubo Scholar fund. Mary Scranton, representing Challenger Hall, beat out Mike Frisk by a slim margin of $4 to become the winner of the fund race! Thanks to Jackie Collier, Mark Lang, Michael French, Mary Scranton, Brad Peterson and Mike Frisk for agreeing to participate in the fund race and to everyone who made donations!
