WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – The Purdue Cancer Center says they’ve reached their goal to raise $1 million for cancer research in honor of Purdue alum and superfan Tyler Trent.

The Purdue Cancer Center says it received $500,000 in donations for the Tyler Trent Endowment.

The Walther Cancer Foundation is matching that.
