Wesleyan’s 2nd Annual Relay For Life is Here

News from Ann Wheeler ’12

Do you like carnival games, free food, music, and more? Do you hate cancer?

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.

So don’t miss out on one of the springs biggest events. Everyone is welcome. Don’t forget to bring some cash. See you there!

Date: April 8
Time: Noon
Place: Usdan Courtyard
Cost: $10
