Organized by Endicott College students, the public and the entire college community is invited to participate in the 15th annual Relay for Life, an all-night fundraising event which aims to raise $50,000 for the American Cancer Society. The event will be held from Friday, March 29 at 5 p.m. through Saturday, March 30 at 5 a.m. at the Post Center Science & Fitness Center on the campus of Endicott College.
With a board games theme, the 15th annual Relay for Life will feature fun activities, food, music, and games while also honoring cancer survivors and those who lost their lives or loved ones to cancer. Those interested in participating can register online early for $20 or pay an in-person $25 registration at the door. To register early or support the cause, please visit relayforlife.org/endicott.
“I've had several family members and friends suffer from cancer, and some unfortunately lost the battle,” says Endicott student Kelsey O’Keefe, one of the event’s senior organizers. “Relay is our way of being able to give back and help those in need, which is very close to my heart.”
Students and supporters will keep themselves awake with dodgeball, trivia, and a “Captain Relay” competition consisting of wacky challenges. Country music station 101.7-FM “The Bull” will be on hand, and food will be provided by Panera Bread, Prides Deli and Pizzeria, and Sodexo. There will also be raffle drawings featuring items donated by local businesses.
The night will also include a luminaria memorial in which students and supporters will line Endicott’s field house with lighted bags to pay tribute to those who lost their lives to cancer. Parking for cancer survivors and their families is available on campus at the Post Center.Relay for Life Sponsors
