Colleges Against Cancer plans to raise $70,000 to support the American Cancer Society.
The registered student organization is hosting CMU’s annual Relay for Life event from noon to midnight Saturday, March 25 in the Central Michigan University Indoor Athletic Complex.
Grace Kozak, community manager for the American Cancer Society, said the event’s purpose is to raise awareness about cancer, to celebrate the survivors and to help people within their community utilize resources around them.
“(Relay for Life events) give people a chance to fight back,” Kozak said. - From http://www.cm-life.com/article/2017/03/rfl-preview-2017
Sunday, the Colleges Against Cancer Committee has raised $2,951, while the CMU Cheerleading team has contributed $2,920.
Different items such as food, beads and buttons will be sold at tables on the track throughout the day, Sulkowski said.
The opening ceremony honors survivors at the event, while the second ceremony, Luminaria, is where people will have a chance to reflect on their experiences with cancer.
The group also has volunteers that will help set up and tear down the event.
Relay for Life is such a powerful event and it will always be something that is important to me.” Those with any questions about the event can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
