Relay For Life, an annual event held on campus by the Colleges Against Cancer club, will be held on April 6 from 4-10 p.m. in the quad.
Commonly called Relay, the event is sponsored by the American Cancer Society to help raise money and awareness for cancer patients. Relay For Life is held every year worldwide, with millions of participants, many of them returning from previous years.
This will be a mini Relay, as the full version is a 24-hour event. Each hour, there will be a different theme such as old school relay gear, school spirit, tie-dye, lu’au, magic and more. There will be games every hour as well including tug-of-war, limbo, a sack race and a water balloon toss.
ACE Board will be providing music throughout the event and other university clubs or organizations can reserve a table and run their own games or fundraisers at the relay.
Kristina Kohl, President of Colleges Against Cancer, stated that, “This is a really great event for Pacific students to help support cancer awareness and build community while raising money for the American Cancer Society and having fun at the same time. We hope everyone will come out and support Relay For Life and all of the hard work we put into it.”
Those wishing to participate in Relay for Life can sign up on the event’s website, relayforlife.org under the event listed for the search term “Pacific University.”
