The Keefe Volunteer Floor is sponsoring a Relay For Life to benefit the American Cancer Society noon-midnight Saturday, Oct. 20, at the Kirby Sports Center outdoor track.

The goal is to “raise funds, pay tribute to survivors, memorialize those who have lost their lives, and to also raise awareness of the continual fight towards a cure for cancer,” says Kelly Egan ’03 (Vernon, N.J.), president of the Keefe Volunteer Floor.

Each team will be have at least one member walking on the track during the 12 hours of the event. At about 7 p.m., a luminary-lighting ceremony will be held. Each team will be asked to help with tasks such as setup, lighting, and cleanup.

Relay teams of four to 15 members can register for $5 per member, although larger amounts are welcome. Each team will be given an envelope with a sign-up sheet for general donations and another sheet and envelope for purchasing luminaries in memory of a cancer victory or in celebration of those who have survived cancer.

“The teams can create a theme for their groups and be creative to make the event fun,” says Egan. “The teams are not limited to their fundraising methods.”

Teams will seek donations based simply on their participation in the event, regardless of how many times team members circle the track. A prize will be given to the team that raises the most money.
There is no registration deadline.
