Float on Flem is an event sponsored by the Red and Blue Crew during the annual Spring Game that honors the life of Ryan Fleming. Ryan was a Duquesne student who was in the Business School and was the Assistant to the Director of Football Operations. He passed away in his sleep due to Wolff Parkinson White Syndrome, a heart condition that causes an increased heart rate. He was actively involved in the Red and Blue Crew and in the classroom. Last year, Float on Flem had about 20 student organizations volunteer Chinese auction baskets and food tables to raise profit for the Ryan Fleming Scholarship Fund, a fund started by his family in his memory.
This year’s Float on Flem will take place on Saturday, April 11 at 4:15 p.m. Free t-shirts will be distributed. Proceeds this year will benefit the scholarship fund and the American Heart Association.
