Relay For Life

Relay For Life is a fun-filled overnight event designed to celebrate survivorship and raise money for research and programs of your American Cancer Society. During the event, teams of people gather at schools, fairgrounds, or parks and take turns walking or running laps. Each team tries to keep at least one team member on the track at all times.

Relay For Life represents the hope that those lost to cancer will never be forgotten, that those who face cancer will be supported, and that one day, cancer will be eliminated.

Colleges Against Cancer’s Relay for Life will be held in April from 7 pm to 7 am at the University of Illinois Track grounds. Currently there are 13 teams of 10-12 people who registered last spring at the 2nd annual Paint Green Street Purple, and we look forward to signing up many more at this event. Relay For Life is more than a fundraiser; it is about being a community dedicated to eliminating cancer.

This year you can expect some fun events such a freeze dance, name that year, making a huge paper chain with names of people affected by cancer on each strip, learn how to perform breast exams and check for testicular cancer, Jeopardy, the hugging game, games from different decades (hula hoops, limbo, skip-it, tether ball, four square, Chinese jump rope, and double-dutch), big booty, bags tournament, and a scavenger hunt!!
