Relay For Life events are life-changing cancer fundraising events that help communities across the globe fight back against cancer.

Clarion University’s ‘Colleges Against Cancer’ is partnering with the American Cancer Society to host this year’s Relay for Life event beginning at 8 a.m. on Friday, April 15 and running through 8 a.m. on Saturday, April 16 in the Student Rec Center.

For the first time in event history, participating teams have reached and surpassed the $26,000 fundraising goal before the start of the event.

Over 500 Clarion University students, faculty and staff are joining together in the fight against cancer with thirty-four teams working diligently to raise much-needed funds for cancer research, treatment and patient support services.

Each year, more than four million people in over 20 countries raise much-needed funds and awareness to save lives from cancer through the Relay for Life movement. 

During Relay, participants, families and survivors celebrate what they’ve overcome, remember the people lost to the disease, and honor those who have fought or are currently fighting cancer.

While at Relay, teams work to raise awareness about how you can join the American Cancer Society in the fight against the disease that takes away so much from so many.

Come out to support the cause!
