Apr4Relay for Life
Want to have fun, make friends, and make a difference in the lives of people fighting cancer? Come to our Relay for Life Event! Relay For Life at UMass Dartmouth is a team fundraising cancer walk event where team members take turns walking around a track to raise money for the American Cancer Society. Our event is held in the campus quad from noon to midnight (weather permitting, or in the gym). Each team is encouraged to set up a themed campsite at the event and continues their fundraising efforts by collecting donations for food, goods, games, and activities. This money will count towards their overall team fundraising goal. We generally have bouncy houses, games, sports competitions, music and performers, food, and so much more every year! It is a day filled with fun and celebrating how far we have come in the fight against cancer, while working to find the cure. Start a team with your friends or your club, or come as you are!
