TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- Some Florida State University students spent the afternoon outdoors helping raise money on Giving Tuesday. While the day inspires generosity, the fundraising is part of a year-long mission.
FSU students hosted “Carnival for a Cure.” Students could purchase pizza, cotton candy, and beverages. Money raised goes to FSU Relay for Life. Donations could also be used for carnival games or to tie-dye Relay for Life shirts.
FSU Relay for Life is trying to raise $25,000 in 24 hours. The group raised thousands of dollars online.
Gabriela Paris is the executive director of FSU Relay for Life. She says the carnival is just one part of the overall goal.
"Each of us has our own reason for why we do what we do. That's kind of what fuels every single person in leadership and every single participant in FSU Relay for Life," said Paris.
FSU Relay for Life will also host a Gala and other events leading up to Relay for Life in 2018.
