Did you kick cancer's butt, or know anyone that did?


Contributed by Alyssa Frey

  We would like to invite you to celebrate your strength and inspire others by joining Colleges Against Cancer at Relay for Life of Ithaca College, an Academy Awards-themed event in partnership with the American Cancer Society. The events will kick off Saturday, March 29 at 2 p.m. in the Ithaca College A&E Center.

Before Relay starts, we would like to invite you to participate in our Survivor Reception at 1 p.m. in the VIP Room located in the A&E Center. Please bring along a loved-one, family member, or friend to the reception. The Survivor Reception is a perfect time to connect with others over food and drink before our Relay for Life begins.

  Survivors and caregivers alike describe attending a Relay For Life event as a life-changing experience. By getting involved and attending our Relay, you can meet others with similar experiences and discover opportunities for learning, sharing, and friendship. March 29 will be communal night to celebrate, remember, and fight back.

Please join us in raising the awareness and money needed to finish the fight. Bring your walking shoes and a smile because it'll be a night to celebrate and honor everyone’s achievements! See you on the red carpet!
