Relay For Life at CU

On Friday, April 12th, 2012, CU Boulder is having a Relay for Life event sponsored by the CU Recreational Services and CU Colleges Against Cancer. This event will be taking place at the CU Recreational Center starting at 7:00 pm.

Relay for Life is a fundraising event for the American Cancer Society. The American Cancer Society not only helps those who have have already been diagnosed with cancer, but also invests in finding a cure. The Relay for Life event requires one member from each team to walk on the track inside the Rec Center all night long. This exemplifies the idea that “cancer never sleeps, so for one night neither will we.”

As of April 4th, two Jewish organizations on campus are in the top three fundraising teams. Sorority, Sigma Rho Lambda, and fraternity, Alpha Epsilon Pi, hold the second and third place respectively. This year, I will be walking and participating on AEPi’s team.

Donations, of any amount, would be greatly appreciated. To donate to Relay for Life, please click HERE. Thank you very much for your support.
