A Big THANK YOU From Colleges Against Cancer!

Thank you to everyone who came out to our 2014 Relay For Life event! Together, we were able to raise $15,868.96 for the American Cancer Society, and you can still keep raising money up until August! It is so awesome to see how much of a difference we were able to make despite the brief monsoon/hurricane we had during the event! Again, thanks to everyone who came out and participated, and we hope to see you at next year's Relay! Also, if you are interested in becoming a part of our committee and help plan the Relay For Life events, make sure to check us out at the Fall Activities Fair!
