FHU Students to Stay 'Up All Night for the Fight'

MARCH 4, 2013

The six social clubs at Freed-Hardeman University are organizing the first “Up All Night for the Fight,” a fundraiser for the battle against cancer. The all-night event for students will begin at 10 p.m. Friday, March 8, at Mid-South Youth Camp.

A $10 admission fee will be taken at the gate, with additional donations being accepted. In addition, T-shirts will be sold for $10. Proceeds from “Up All Night for the Fight” will go toward The Hope Project, an effort to feed hungry children supported by FHU librarian who is battling cancer; Chester County Relay for Life; and the expenses of Caleb Sams, an FHU student currently fighting cancer.

Events will be scheduled throughout the night, including a bonfire and devotional, student concert, basketball tournament and viewing of the movie “Les Misérables.” Breakfast will be provided at 5 a.m. Students are also encouraged to bring games and cards.

“The clubs are so excited about this event,” Kaylan Stewart, an FHU staff member helping with the fundraiser, said. “We are hoping that, if all goes well, this will become a yearly event that only keeps growing.”
