Relay for Life hosted their annual kick-off event on Tuesday, November 14 in the Arnow Campus Center. The event allowed groups to sign up at a discounted rate for that evening only, although tickets are available from now until the Relay for Life event, and will increase in price by increments. The event was complete with balloons, music, cake, and of course, a large body of students in attendance. The club also revealed the Disney theme for the anticipated 2018 relay season.
Relay for Life president Megan Croce spearheaded the kick-off. “Tuesday’s event held a lot of excitement because we [… ]began the registration process, which is where most of our fundraising money comes from, and it set the bar for this year’s event,” Croce said.
She expressed gratitude towards the student body, and those who participate in Relay for Life, for their contributions towards the American Cancer Society. “As a senior, it’s a bittersweet feeling to kick-off my last relay season as a undergraduate,” said Croce.
Relay for Life will be held on April 7 from 10 p.m. until 6 a.m. the following morning in the Athletic Center. The club encourages all those to get involved and participate in this year’s event.
