Relay For Life

Relay at the UMich

As we all know, philanthropy is HUGE on our campus. One event that gets a ton of people involved every year is Relay for Life is an event sponsored by the American Cancer Society that raises money for cancer research and awareness. Last year, the University of Michigan was the #2 college relay in the nation, with over 2,300 participants.

The actual relay starts on April 15th at 10 AM and goes through the night until 10 AM the next day. For those of you who haven't heard if it before, people create teams and at least one person from each team must be on the track walking at all times during the 24 hours. Each team raises a certain amount of money in order to enter, which is then donated to the American Cancer Society.

Skate For a Good Cause

Tomorrow, the 26th, Relay for Life is hosting a skate night at Yost Arena from 8-12. Admission is $3 (and an extra $2 if you need to rent skates). All proceeds go to the account of any team you choose.

Support a great cause and having fun skating with your friends.
