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!

Ann Wheeler ’12 wants you to participate in Wesleyan’s Relay for Life!

Did you know that 1 out of 3 people will be diagnosed with cancer this year? Did you know you have the ability to fight back and change that number? On Tuesday, February 8, Relay For Life of Wesleyan will be hosting their Kick Off event during the normal lunch hours of 11-2pm in the Usdan Marketplace. Visit the information tables to learn more! Wesleyan University will be hosting the Second Annual American Cancer Society Relay For Life on Friday, April 8, outside Usdan. Relay For Life is a noncompetitive team walking event that joins together campuses and communities worldwide in the fight against cancer. Relay is more than just a fundraiser, it is a celebration of life and hope and most importantly, it is FUN! Last year Wesleyan brought in over $27,000 for the American Cancer Society to support cancer research, education, advocacy and free patient services for those battling cancer. This year we hope to double our efforts! We encourage you to create your own team or join ours as we come together to honor all those who have been touched by cancer.

Help plan Wesleyan’s 2nd Relay for Life

Relay for LifeFrom Ann Wheeler ’12:

As many of you probably know, last spring was Wesleyan’s first ever Relay for Life. Together, we raised over $25,000 for the American Cancer Society! We set the bar high, but we can do even better this year with your help. Even though the Relay doesn’t take place until the spring, planning starts now. If you’re interested in getting involved (helping us plan, advertise, network, etc), or just learning about the event, please contact Ann Wheeler at awheeler(at)wesleyan(dot)edu or our American Cancer Society staff partner Christina Owczarek at Christina.Owczarek(at)cancer(dot)org. Thanks!
