The American Cancer Society Relay for Life is an event that communities across the globe participate in during a 24-hour marathon of activities to of raising money for the foundation.
The overnight celebration hosted its firstever event on Cabrini’s campus last year. This year, the Cabrini College community is hoping to have an even bigger turnout, which will hopefully bring in even more money for such a great cause.
Would you be willing to stay up all night in celebration of the survivors, the remembered and those currently battling cancer?
The Loquitur thinks there is no excuse for those who don’t get involved in this campaign to raise both awareness and money for cancer.
Every department on campus is encouraged to form a group in which they can fundraise together and participate in the events together.
All of the proceeds will go straight to the American Cancer Society where it’s funneled to research grants and research programs, prevention programs, community and patient support programs, detection and treatment programs, management and fundraising.
Participating as a community of students and faculty to help find a cure for cancer is something no one should pass by.
There are currently 21 teams, 72 participants and $6993.25 raised. There is still time to donate and participate. Contact [email protected].
Relay for Life will be held March 26-27 at 3p.m.-7a.m. at Cabrini College Dixon Center.
