Miles for Moffitt

A record crowd is expected at USF’s Tampa Campus May 12th for the seventh annual Miles for Moffitt. Runners, walkers and wheelchair racers will turn out in force, with all money raised going directly to research efforts at Moffitt Cancer Center. University Beat on WUSF TV has a preview.

ShelterBox

On first look, a “ShelterBox” appears to contain nothing more than a tent and some camping gear. In reality, it’s a collection of tools that will help a displaced family survive after a disaster.
This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 visits a group of students who spent two nights in a ShelterBox tent on the USF Sarasota-Manatee campus to raise funds for the Bay area-based organization behind this worldwide life-saving effort.
