If so, this is the event for you.

Relay For Life joins together students, faculty, staff and alumni from over 484 colleges and universities worldwide to raise money and awareness for the American Cancer Society. At Relay, teams take to the track to celebrate cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against this disease! Last year, Wesleyan raised $27,000 for the ACS. This year, we’re going to destroy that number.
