Relay For Life of American University

Relay For Life of American University Cancer never sleeps, so for one night, neither do we. Join AU in the fight against cancer! http://www.relayforlife.org/audc
The American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life is an overnight community celebration of life dedicated to present and former cancer patients, their families and friends. 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.

During the summer and fall months, these men raise funds towards research, patient programs, and risk reduction. Throughout October, they commit to wearing something pink every day and spreading awareness of the cause to their entire network. At our Pink Tie Gala on November 2nd, these men are invited to bring their families, friends and co-workers to an evening of celebration.

Each year, over 1.7 million people are diagnosed with cancer. For thousands of these patients, getting a ride to and from treatment is their biggest roadblock. That’s where the American Cancer Society’s Road To Recovery program comes in.

By donating $10 towards a cancer patient’s ride to treatment, you will be entered into a chance to win a Brand New Honda CR-V or $20,000!*

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]

* Car raffle drawing will be held on 12/18/19. You do not need to be present to win.

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!

Here's why volunteer & cancer survivor @Asia Cutforth is a proud participant of Relay For Life of American University. She says, "I joined Relay at American University when I returned to college after cancer treatment. I Relay because no one should ever be defined by their diagnosis. A doctor giving someone the awful news does not cause them to shed all past identities and own the title of cancer survivor. We are cancer survivors, but we are people first. American Cancer Society Relay For Life and ACS help all of those affected by cancer remember that message by creating the space for us to work together and raise money. It’s a win-win that I am so thankful to be a part of."

Recognizing Relay For Life of American University volunteer @Dani Brennan who got involved with Relay her freshman year. She says, "I wanted I to be a part of an organization that helps make a difference overall but has also helped to make a difference in my own life. I’ve lost many different friends and family to cancer, and I know ACS has helped them on an individual level, so being able to take part in a foundation that raises money for ACS has been amazing. Today, nearly everyone has a cancer story, and I feel that through Relay For Life not only are these stories able to be heard but they’ve become bigger pushes and instigators in the overall desire to put this disease to an end."
