Relay for Life

  • Relay for LifeThe Administration and Finance Division is continuing its efforts in the fight against cancer by participating in the 2016 Indiana County Relay for Life Event to be held from 4:00 p.m. Friday, May 13 until 4:00 p.m. Saturday, May 14 at the White Township Recreation Complex.

    We ask for your support and participation as we join forces to raise funds for cancer research, to encourage cancer resource networking, and to help educate Americans about cancer prevention and early detection. All of us have been touched by this terrible disease either ourselves, or through a family member or friend. The Relay for Life is one way that we can join together to fight this disease.

    The Relay for Life is a 24-hour event, where each team is to have one walker on the course at all times. We are always looking for team members! Team members will sign up to walk for an hour or more at the event, man the IUP Trackers tent, and/or donate food for our team walkers. Team members are asked to seek pledges as well as participate in other fundraising events. Thanks to the generosity of area businesses, rocking chairs will also be available, so you may choose to “walk or rock”! Please know that your family and friends are welcome to participate. If interested, please register for our team. 

    All cancer survivors are invited to attend the Survivor Brunch, which immediately follows the survivor lap, beginning Saturday, May 14 at 10:00 a.m. If you are a cancer survivor and plan to attend the survivor’s brunch, please download and complete the Survivor Registration form and return it to the address on the bottom of the form by April 29, 2016.

    If you would like to order a luminaria in honor of, or in memory of a loved one, please complete the luminaria order form (pdf) and return it with payment to Sutton Hall, room G8 by May 4, 2016. Please make checks payable to the American Cancer Society. Be sure to include the team name (IUP Trackers) on the luminaria order form.
