IC Hope, our campus Relay for Life team, has just learned some very exciting news. We will be part of a national marketing campaign for the American Cancer Society. The Tompkins County Relay has been chosen as the only Relay in the country to be filmed for a part of the American Cancer Society's new marketing campaign. Our Relay will be filmed on location in Lansing July 14-15. In addition to the Relay, 5-7 survivors will be interviewed by phone and in person as part of the campaign, and three of those selected are part of the IC Hope team. What a tremendous opportunity to show the nation how Ithaca College cares! You can show how you care, too, by supporting the team's fundraising efforts and by showing up to lend support at the Relay. Don't wait for the winged monkeys to bring you to the Campus Center. Check out this schedule to see how and when you can help us:
