Relay For Life raises funds for the American Cancer Society while declaring that cancer can and will be beaten. During Relay, Team members take turns walking, camping out, enjoying entertainment, food, and games in a party atmosphere!

Few things are as devastating as dealing with cancer. The courage, dignity and spirit of those fighting the disease is both inspirational and humbling. You can make a difference now and in the future! Thank You! Celebrate. Remember. Fight Back.

“One of the most emotional, yet special moments of my life so far: Being honored for my cancer journey by the American Cancer Society at their 2019 #RelayforLife event,” says Jesus.

“What a surreal experience to be back four years later to the place where my transplant recovery began... a place I called home for the toughest nine months of my life... It was a true honor to share my story with other cancer fighters/survivors, partner organizations, donors, and the community at large. I'm forever grateful for all the love and support throughout this chapter. Que manera de cerrar este capitulo de mi vida con broche de oro... ❤”

Your fundraising efforts enable the American Cancer Society to offer programs like Hope Lodge, providing a free place to stay when treatment is far from home. Thank you.

To make your donation and be entered into the drawing, contact [email protected]

If you’re interested in selling raffle tickets on behalf of ACS to your network, please contact [email protected]

In an effort to keep our event fresh and to recruit as many participants as possible, we are going to be changing the format of the typical Relay for Life event that we host on campus every year. With that being said, the event will be pushed back to the fall of 2019. ** Please note that this means that the April 13th-14th event is no longer taking place.** Once we have a date and the new concept confirmed we will be reaching out to participants and the general public with additional details.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns please contact [email protected].

We appreciate your understanding!
