Relay For Life Date Set For April 5 at Medlar Field

The tenth annual Relay For Life of Penn State is set to take place on Saturday, April 5, 2014 starting at 2 p.m. at Medlar Field. The event will run until 2 p.m. on Sunday, April 6, 2014.

Relay For Life is a 24-hour relay style walk-a-thon during which teams camp out overnight and take turns walking or running around a track. The event benefits the American Cancer Society, but Relay does much more than just fundraise.

“The mission of Relay is to not only raise money for the American Cancer Society,” says Relay For Life of Penn State 2014 Overall Chairperson Courtney Zeuner. “It’s also to celebrate our survivors, remember those we have lost, and to lead the community to fight back against this horrible disease that has claimed so many lives.”

Last year, Relay For Life of Penn State smashed previous records, raising over $137,000 for the American Cancer Society and doubling the amount raised the previous year.

This year, the theme for Relay For Life of Penn State is “In Relay We Trust, United We Fight.” Events throughout the weekend will include live performances, hair donations, guest speakers, games, fundraisers, and a luminaria ceremony to honor those battling cancer.

Leading up to the weekend, Relay For Life plans to hold several “mission events” in order to increase awareness of its goals. Events will be held in the HUB on March 6, March 26, and April 7, with the annual date auction fundraiser set for March 27.

Additionally, the organization recently released its first promo video, which features Relay For Life of Penn State 2014 Overall Chairperson Courtney Zeuner and encourages students to get involved in the mission.
