Students, faculty, and community members are invited to Canisius College’s 9th Annual Relay For Life event this Friday, April 10, from 4:00 p.m. – 4:00 a.m. The 12-hour event is hosted by Colleges Against Cancer and will be held in the Koessler Athletic Center in an effort to raise funds for the American Cancer Society. Relay for Life is a life-changing community event that gives everyone around the world a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease.

What to Expect:

-12-hour, organized community fundraising walk
-Food, games, activities, prizes and more to provide entertainment and build camaraderie
-Teams and individuals take themed laps around a track
-Teams camp out and line up around the track with specially themed fundraising activities, items, and food

Every year, the Relay For Life movement raises more than $400 million. The American Cancer Society puts these donations to work, investing in groundbreaking research for all cancer types and providing free information and services to cancer patients and their caregivers.
