Relay for Life is the signature fundraising event for the American Cancer Society. On George Mason's campus, it is an annual event that typically occurs at the end of April. A committee of GMU students work together to organize the event- recruiting participants to join in on the fun, fundraising, planning activities, and deciding on performances! In 2014, our event hosted over 1,000 participants and we raised over $86,000. We are determined to make a world with more birthdays and LESS CANCER! If you'd like more information about how to join the Relay for Life committee, please e-mail [email protected]. Twitter: @GMURelay Instagram: @GMURelay Snapchat: @GMURFL

Hi everyone! We hope that you’ve had an awesome summer and you’ve missed us! There are big changes coming to our organization this year, and we would like to be as transparent as possible to maintain such awesome support from you guys!

In order to perform to the best of our abilities and maintain the same level of commitment that we strive to provide each year, we will not be having a Relay for Life large scale event for the 2017-2018 school year. This comes after some major changes in our leadership, including no longer being provided an ACS staff partner for this academic year. We are not discouraged and will continue the fight against cancer in a new way!

What does this mean for our organization? We are trying new things, branching out, and getting a bit creative! This year, we will be creating “A Year in the Life of Relay”, where we will be breaking down the events into smaller scaled monthly programs. We will be continuing our support for the American Cancer Society and fundraising through a different online system that will be posted leading up to each event. We would still like to fundraise towards a yearly goal, and we need your support now more than ever.

This decision does not come lightly, as we are thinking what is best for our organization’s members as well as our future. We are so excited to start this journey and re-create our passion in a new way. If you have any questions, please reach out to us, or me personally, [email protected].

If you would like to sign up for our committee this year, please fill out this application by August 25th. Please see chair description link below. Thank you!

Have you bought a Light of Hope in honor of a friend or family member yet? For $10 a Light of Hope with that person's name on it will be placed in front of the Lincoln Memorial on Sept. 25! Even better, you can list your Relay for Life on the payment form so George Mason RFL will receive credit towards becoming a 2018 ACS CAN Club Event! You can purchase #LightsofHope through Calvin's fundraising page--he's a local volunteer from Alexandria! http://action.fightcancer.org/site/TR/Events/GeneralACSCAN?px=3545923&pg=personal&fr_id=1190
