Relay for Life at UChicago is finally here!

6:30PM Opening Ceremony
10:30PM Luminaria Ceremony
5:30AM Closing Ceremony

Every year, over 5000 Relay for Life events are held in 20+ countries, making Relay for Life the world's largest and most impactful fundraiser for cancer research and patient and survivor support programs. Relay for Life at the University of Chicago is an overnight fundraising event that brings together people from UChicago, Hyde Park, and beyond to remember, celebrate, and fight back against cancer in a night of fun. Cancer doesn't sleep, and for one night, neither will we!

A family-friendly event for the entire community, this year's Relay features swing dance workshops, musical performances, Zoomba classes, face painting, bean bag toss, sumo wrestling, giant jenga, sports, air hockey, RAAS workshops, hip hop dance lessons, a bouncy boxing ring, and more! Highlights also include the opening ceremony, the survivors’ lap, the caregivers’ lap, and the Luminaria ceremony, which remembers loved ones lost to the disease. In 2015, over 500 community members raised $23,000 at UChicago’s Relay for Life. This money helps the American Cancer Society assist cancer patients every day through research, lodging, transportation, and support programs, and we look forward to raising even more this year! Keep an eye out for information on Cancer Week leading up to the event, our partnership to raise awareness and get excited for Relay with Be the Match.

We'll make sure to keep you energized all night with great FOOD AND DRINKS! Also, there will be PRIZES AND RAFFLES ranging from Harper Theater tickets, to gift certificates to local restaurants, to Kilwin's fudge, and much more. You can join us at any point for as much or as little time as you want - this is an event you don't want to miss!

Visit www.relayforlife.org/UofCIL to join an existing team or start your own, and feel free to Facebook message Colleges Against Cancer at the University of Chicago for more information. See you there!

$10 for access to dinner, snacks, and performances/activities! And remember, that $10 is a donation to the ACS, so it's going straight to research and patient assistance, not covering our costs for the event :)
