The Gene Team
September 20, 2019
The Human Genetics Student Society with their team, The Gene Team, participated in this year’s Metro Relay for Life event organized by the Canadian Cancer Society – NL.
The event was held on Aug. 24 in St. John’s, NL.

Together, Christie Costello, Aaron Curtis, Gerissa Fowler, Alexia Hawkey-Noble, and Barathy Logendra – members of the Gene Team and graduate students in the Discipline of Genetics – raised nearly $900 for the Canadian Cancer Society, placing fourth out of all teams that participated in this event.

These funds will be used to help support cancer patients and cancer research.

The Gene Team is thrilled to have contributed to this important cause and wishes to thank you all for donating to their team or purchasing tickets to help them raise money.
