This total was a surprise to all of us except for the two accounting chairs who counted the money and totaled it up for us. There is something to be said of working tirelessly an entire year for a great cause and being rewarded by finding out that all of your hard work paid off in spades. On Saturday, we hosted our Big Event…Cobberthon! Cobberthon is a 12 hour event where we stay on our feet the entire time, dancing, running, walking, and working out to raise awareness of the Children’s Miracle Network and all of the great work it does for children with diseases and cancer. We also spend the entire day trying to raise more money for the kids by holding events like ping pong tourneys and Battle of the Bands! Another thing we do to raise money is “put people in jail”. In order to put someone in jail, you have to pay the guards $5 and then in order to get the person out of jail, you bail them out for $10! So each time someone went into jail, we’d raise around $15! At the end of battle of the bands, we revealed our total to ourselves and the audience and we were floored to see just how much money we raised for the kids!

Hello, there! I’m Kelsey Rausch and I am an English Education major from Elk River, Minnesota. It is my hope that I will be able to do extraordinary things with my life and I think I chose the right college to help me make an impact on people’s lives. I have some serious Cobber pride and couldn’t be more in love with this amazing college! I love music in every way that it can be taken in, whether that be listening, collecting, watching, or performing. I’d like to think I have great taste in music and I love connecting with people over a shared interest in music. I’m always up for an adventure and trying new things. I’m (apparently) very awful at telling stories, so I have to have crazy adventures to talk about to make up for my lack of ability. I am always in search of good books to read and I am grateful for God, who has blessed me with so much.
