One in three people will be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetime.
On April 20, 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.
More than just a walk around a track, Relay for Life brings the community together for a night of carnival-themed activities which include a sticky wall, photo booth, inflatable jousting, EZ striker, dip-n-dots, make your own ice cream, tie dye, etc. There will be several performances such as Glee Club, dance team, 808 Step club, several fraternities and sororities, and a “Dancing with the Stars” where several faculty and staff will be paired up with people from the dance team to compete. 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.
So far, more than 450 students, faculty, and staff have registered and raised more than $20,000 for Relay. Registration is $20 and all those who raise $50 will receive a Relay for Life t-shirt.
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.
