Relay For Life!
This will likely be the biggest event of the year! Sponsored by the American Cancer Society, Relay for Life is an overnight relay-style event where our student body forms teams of people to camp out in the quad overnight (6pm-6am). The members of each team take turns walking around the track for the night. There will be food, games, activities, and a little bit of friendly competition to see which team can raise the most money! Fundraising efforts and donations go to the American Cancer Society who continue to help fight back against cancer through research, finding cures, and helping people get well. Pre-Med Society already has its own team, and a goal to raise $10k!! Let’s do it!! To join our team and/or donate follow this link:
