Relay for Life
Our “Relay for Life” team will be selling muffins at the Business Office windows until Friday, March 15. We also have a luminary decorating station if you would like to make a donation and have a luminary at “Relay” in honor of or in memory of someone. Donations can be dropped off at the windows as well. Checks can be made out to the American Cancer Society.
Teams comprised of friends, families and co-workers will join together for this fundraising effort, which celebrates people who have battled cancer, remembers loved ones lost, and provides an opportunity to fight back against the disease.
Last year more than 300 people participated in the event which raised more than $36,000 for the American Cancer Society.
Team members will spend the night walking around SMU’s indoor track from dusk to dawn to represent the 24-hour fight against cancer. Each team raises money for the American Cancer Society. This year’s theme is “Be a hero and fight back against cancer, because not all heroes wear capes!”
Here’s some of the fun that will be happening. Please join us.
