ANS at Relay for Life!

ANS at UTK will be participating in Relay for Life this year!

If you haven’t heard of Relay for Life, here’s the basic rundown:

  • Fundraising event to raise money for the American Cancer Society
  • Money raised goes to support cancer research, early detection, programs for patients & survivors, and much more.
  • Relay for Life fundraisers are held all across the world, with over 5,000 events in the USA alone.
So what is the “Relay”?
  • On April 8th, from 6pm to 3am, teams will gather outside HSS, where a track will be set up. The goal of Relay is to have at least one person from the team walking (or running, if you so choose) around the track for the entire event.
  • Teams fundraise at the event, so there will be bake sales, grilled food, fun activities, and just about anything you can imagine – from trivia to donuts to midnight Zoomba (don’t worry, lots of stuff for free!).
  • We have a celebration for those in our lives who have battled cancer – usually most people’s favorite part of the night.
What exactly do you do?
  • Join our team! Registration costs only $15, and all of that goes towards our fundraising goal.
  • Ask family and friends for donations prior to the event.
  • Come to Relay for Life on April 8th and support ANS!
