Relay for Life at Monmouth University on April 25 and 26

Monmouth University and The American Cancer Society invite individuals who want to honor cancer survivors and caregivers, or pay tribute to those who have lost their battle with cancer by joining its Relay For Life event, on Friday, April 25 and Saturday, April 26, 5 p.m. to 5 a.m., at Monmouth University’s Multipurpose Activity Center (MAC).  Approximately 600 Monmouth University students and employees are scheduled to participate.

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is an overnight community celebration where individuals and teams camp out, barbecue, dance, and take turns walking around a track relay style to raise funds to fight cancer. At nightfall, participants will light hundreds of luminarias around the track in a moving ceremony to honor cancer survivors as well as friends and family members who lost their battle with the disease. The American Cancer Society Relay For Life represents hope that those lost to cancer will never be forgotten, that those who face cancer will be supported, and that one day cancer will be eliminated.
