Why I Relay

Why I Relay

 Relay For Life is a community based event put on by the American Cancer Society that raises money to fund not only cancer research. The money we raise together goes to the smaller things too, the things you may have forgotten cost money, like wigs, transportation to and from treatment, or patient lodging. However, Relay For Life isn’t just the average event solely looking for monetary donations; Relay For Life is proactive. When attending a Relay For Life Event, you join the movement. 

Thousands of volunteers and participants gather at each event to walk around the track for 12 hours straight at night. Each team is encouraged to always have at least one member walking around the track at all points throughout the night, symbolizing the presence of cancer: cancer never sleeps. If cancer patients cannot choose when to stop their battle, take a break, or stop fighting, neither can participants. Each team is also encouraged to set up a campsite at the event to spend a night filled with games, stands, and fundraising. 

Throughout high school, I found home and passion in Relay For Life of Harrison. I was fortunate enough  to take on the role  President/ Event Lead of Relay For Life of Harrison just last year. Relay For Life has become an integral part of my high school career providing me with an outlet to become a part of something greater than any academic assignment or standardized test. Relay For Life has become a passion, a passion I hope you all will share with me.

This fall, as I was looking for a greater community to become a part of on campus, I joined Relay For Life of Northwestern. I hope to continue to provide community to those impacted by cancer who need it, and find community with Relay as well. 

Please join me in this fight. ANY donation is greatly appreciated.

Cancer has touched all of us in some way. And we want to stop this disease in its tracks. We'll spend the next few weeks fundraising for the American Cancer Society. Then, on the day of the event, we'll honor the lives lost to cancer, celebrate survivors, and support the caregivers who so selflessly help others.  

Together, we'll be a part of making a difference in this important cause.
