Relay For Life

Relay For Life is fast approaching! It begins Saturday, April 12th at 6:30 and runs until Sunday, April 13th at approximately 8 am. Opening ceremonies and the Team Banner Lap are at 6:30, so everyone will want to be there for that! The Survivor's Lap and the Luminaria are at 9, so that's a time not to be missed either. Other than that, there's no pressure to stay all night, but fyi, if you leave past 12, you can't get back in until 6 (free breakfast!). Although we haven't chosen a theme as a group yet, we'll be doing so at some point in the future, as well as making a fun banner and deciding on a fundraiser for our time at the Relay.

While we don't have any team fundraisers planned for the weeks leading up to the big event, everyone can feel free to do as much individual fundraising as they want! Hit up any businesses you know or relatives you have that might want to contribute to this amazing cause devoted to the fight against cancer. You can collect change at other clubs or activities you're involved in, or even empty out that own cute little piggy bank of yours. Whatever you feel comfortable with! Any checks you get should be made out to the American Cancer Society, and any money you come up with can be given to Liz or Julie and we'll made sure it gets to the coordinators of the event.

Also, if you or anyone you know want to buy a Luminaria to honor the life of a survivor or commemorate someone who has passed away, Julie has the forms you'll need, and the cost is only 5 dollars.

Most importantly though, if you haven't already, join the team! Click here to sign up! Anyone can be a part of the NOW-NYU team!
