Relay For Life of Shepherd University

April 7-8, 2017 at the Wellness Center

Shepherd University Alternative Break Programsyoutube RPButton2

Relay For Life is a fun-filled, overnight event that empowers everyone to help fight cancer by raising money and awareness to support the American Cancer Society’s lifesaving mission. Teams of students, faculty, staff and community members camp out in Shepherd’s Wellness Center and take turns walking/running to raise money for the ACS. Since 2003, Shepherd University has raised over $500,000 in support of the American Cancer Society. Relay For Life symbolizes the hope that people lost to cancer will never be forgotten, that those who face the disease have support, and that one day cancer will be eliminated.

This year, come and celebrate with us in a Dr. Seuss themed world.  We are striving for a world without cancer..

Cancer Not Here, Not There, Not Anywhere!
