Cancer Doesn’t Sleep and Neither Will We!

One in three people will be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetime. The journey to end this horrible disease starts with a single step. On April 26, the PLV Campus invites you to take that step and celebrate, remember, and fight back against cancer as they host the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life.

“Raise money. Stay up all night. Party with your friends. Make a difference. Laugh. Cry. Dance. Walk. Meet new friends. Give hope. Fight cancer. Join Relay for Life.”

On April 26–27, join the fight against cancer as Pace hosts Relay for Life in the Goldstein Fitness Center in PLV. The American Cancer Society’s signature event, Relay for Life is a fun-filled, overnight event that brings people together to raise money to fight cancer.

So far, more than 550 students, faculty, and staff have registered and raised more than $35,000 for Relay. Registration is $20 and all those who raise $50 will receive a Relay for Life t-shirt. On Tuesday, April 24, CAC will also collect fundraising money at Bank Night.

More than just a walk around a track, Relay for Life brings the community together for a night of activities, food, entertainment, and games sponsored by student organizations and Greek Life. A Survivors and Caregivers 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.

Join more than 4 million people from more than 20 countries 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. So far, the Relay for Life movement has raised more than $4 billion to fight cancer.

Paint the Campus Purple

Relay for Life is three weeks away, but before we can get to the main event, we need to paint the PLV Campus purple.

What better way to remind people about one of the greatest events on the PLV Campus then by “painting” the campus purple? Join us on April 13 in getting every talking about the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life event happening on April 29-30 at Pace. No chalk or hard to clean stuff this year, Expo markers for the classroom boards and ribbon for the  trees on campus.

Following the purple pride, Colleges Against Cancer (CAC) will be doing raffles and giveaways in the Setter’s Cafe. Since the American Cancer Society is the official sponsor of birthdays, the Setter’s Cafe will be full of gifts, including gift baskets, gift cards, and two Kindles. Students will be able to purchase tickets to put in a box next to their favorite gifts and the winners will be picked at the end of the day. All proceeds will go to Relay for Life!

Interested in participating in Relay for Life on April 29-30 and helping to create more birthdays? Sign up before April 15 and pay only $10 to join the fight against cancer. Beginning on April 15, registration will cost $20.

Leftover wings will be distributed to students watching the game, but we know you won’t let that happen!

Best Place to Volunteer

Last month we had a whole issue on some of the greatest places to volunteer in NYC and Westchester, but it looks like we left out some of your favorites. The Pawscar for best place to volunteer goes to…

Relay for Life in PLV and a range of NYC homeless shelter projects including Sylvia’s Place, WIN (Women in Need)Homes for the Homeless, and hours spent volunteering at shelters with New York Cares.

Every year, Pace hosts the American Cancer Society’s signature event, Relay for Life, on the PLV campus. Student, faculty, staff, and the community gather overnight to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease. The 2010 Relay for Life of Pace University raised $40,000.

In NYC, you picked Sylvia’s Place, an emergency overnight shelter for LGBTQ youth; WIN (Women in Need), which provides housing, help, and hope to New York City women and their families; and Homes for the Homeless, which provides homeless families the opportunity to move out of the shelters and live independently.
