On April 24th, 2014, hundreds of Gannon University Community Members will join together at the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Gannon University to help finish the fight against cancer. The event will take place from 1 pm to 1 am on April 24th, 2015 at Gannon University Recreation and Wellness center.
The Relay For Life program is a community-based event where teams and individuals set up campsites at a school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team has at least one participant on the track at all times. Cancer survivors and caregivers take a celebratory first lap to start each event. Four million people participated in more than 6,000 events worldwide last year. The funds raised support groundbreaking cancer research, education and prevention programs, and critical services for people facing cancer.
