Canisius College sophomore Emily Scheck said she has stopped accepting donations to her GoFundMe page.
"The positive outreach has been unbelievable," Scheck said in a statement thanking contributors. "I never expected this amount of support. I have chosen to stop accepting online donations because what has been given is more than anyone could have expected."
Scheck said she would continue to run cross-country at Canisius while pursuing her business degree.
"I now know that family is not always something you have, but something you find," she said.
