Tufts Relay For Life 2015

Relay For Life is a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society that takes place at colleges, high schools, and communities all over the world. This Friday, April 10th, hundreds of Tufts students will be participating in our very own campus event. Students on campus create teams and raise money together to reach Relay's goal of ending the fight against cancer. This year, the event’s theme is Camp Relay. Relay is in Gantcher, so sadly there won’t be a campfire for roasting s’mores, but there will be plenty of tents, sleeping bags, and fun activities for you and your teammates.

There are many important and emotional ceremonies that take place throughout the night, including the Luminaria Ceremony, which honors those we have lost to cancer, and the Fight Back Ceremony, which urges us to take action and help the cause. While the event has very serious meaning behind it, the evening is not all solemn. There will also be lots of food and fun entertainment, such as a photo booth, glitter tattoos, and friendship bracelets. SOC, Sarabande, the Amalgamates, and many more student groups will be performing throughout the night.

This year’s fundraising goal is $95,000, and we’ve already made great progress towards this goal. However, we still need more help to reach this sum! So, Collegiettes, go join a team with your hallmates, sisters, and friends to help Tufts fight back against cancer! There is plenty of time to register! Sign up now at relayforlife.org/tufts.
