Relay for Life Set for April 26-27

The eighth annual Relay for Life event, sponsored by the American Cancer Society, will be held in the Alumni Sports and Recreation Center (Armory) April 26-27 from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. Relay for Life is a community event that celebrates the lives of cancer survivors and remembers those who have lost their battle with the devastating disease. Committee members have selected a Las Vegas theme for this year.
To date, members of the Rensselaer campus community—including Greek Life, student-athletes, student clubs, faculty, staff, and others—have joined forces to raise nearly $29,000 (and counting) for cancer research.

Thus far, more than 60 teams and nearly 700 participants have registered to support the event. Participating teams will walk or run laps around the Armory track in an effort to increase cancer awareness, raise funds, and celebrate survivorship.

Last year, Relay for Life at Rensselaer involved more than 1,300 participants and raised $103,000. Since its inception, Rensselaer has raised more than half a million dollars to support patient services, research, education, and advocacy within the Capital Region.

The annual event is coordinated by a committee of nearly 30 students devoted to planning activities, entertainment, and the engagement of the Rensselaer community.
