We are very excited to have our own Relay on campus again. For those that don’t know what Relay is, it is the big fundraiser that American Cancer Society holds every year, it is a way that we can gather the community up and celebrate our cancer survivors and remember the ones we lost. It starts at 6 p.m. and goes to 6 a.m., and we will have entertainment to make the event fun and enjoyable.
If you are interested in finding out more about Relay, we are having a big kick-off event, Monday, January 27 at 5:30 p.m. in the Campus Center Ballroom, room 108.3. We will have food and giveaways.
