On February 24, 2002, the American Cancer Society put on the Community and College Unite for Research and Education (C.U.R.E Cancer) run to raise money for cancer research. The event was a university and community cooperative effort. One of the organizers was Dr. Joe Colletti who had the help of many faculty, staff, and students in the day long event. In total, the event raised about $75,000 with the Forestry department participants chipping in almost $2,500
