Don’t Miss Relay for Life 2017

Today, February 3rd, Chatham University will host its annual Relay For Life event. The whole day will be packed with lots of fun activities that will all raise money benefiting the American Cancer Society. All of the proceeds go towards cancer research, education, and patient/caregiver support.

Doors for Relay will open at 11am for lunch and the official start of the event will be at 12pm. Through 8pm, activities to raise money for the American Cancer Society will be ongoing. The Opening Ceremony will take place at 12pm, with the Survivor, Luminaria, and Fight Back Ceremonies at 6pm.

Some of the activities you can look out for at the event include Human Hungry Hungry Hippos, Pie-A-Professor, LipSync Battle, and Musical Chairs. In addition to these fun activities, we will also be hosting a raffle throughout the day. Some examples of raffle prizes include Pittsburgh Pirates tickets, LulaRoe gift certificate, Painting With A Twist, Kards Unlimited, and many more!

In addition to monetary donations, at 7pm hair stylists will be taking donations of hair to make wigs for cancer patients. All donations will be given to Pantene Beautiful Lengths. The only requirements for hair donation is that it must be a minimum of 8 inches and not have been bleached in the last year (dyed hair without bleach is perfectly fine).

Even though the event is today, online donations will be accepted through August of 2017.

Also, Her Campus Chatham has donated a raffle basket full of Vera Bradley products and makeup! Make sure to stop by!

We hope that you will come out to participate in this awesome campus event benefitting a great cause!
