Paint the Campus Purple

In just a few months, the Pace Community will gather on the PLV Campus to celebrate, remember, and fight back against cancer at the annual Relay for Life. But before you relay, you must register. Stop by the Relay for Life Kickoff on February 19 in PLV!

Did you know that one in three people will be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetime?

On April 26, the PLV Campus will join more than 3.5 million people from 4,900 communities across the country to celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against a disease that touches too many lives.

On February 19, put on your purple and stop by the Relay for Life Kickoff from 9:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. in the Gottesman Room to learn more about the event, sign up teams and individuals, submit testimonials on why you relay, buy a Luminaria bag, participate in activities to win prizes from the American Cancer Society, enjoy some free food, music, and more!

The first Team Captain meeting will be held after the kickoff, and C.A.C. will go over what being a team captain involves and hand out packets and all information needed.

Each year Pace raises close to $50,000 for the American Cancer Society. The American Cancer Society’s signature event, Relay for Life, is a fun-filled, overnight event that brings people together to raise money for cancer. More than just a walk around a track, activities in the past have included a Rock Band competition, breast cancer bingo, casino night, and live performances. A Survivors Lap will celebrate the victories we’ve achieved over cancer and an emotional Luminaria Ceremony will pay tribute to those affected by cancer with a bright glow of hope that lights up the night. Make a difference today by signing up, joining a team, or simply making a donation. Together, we’re creating a world with more birthdays!
