Adelphi’s Relay for Life

This event is now an online campaign.

Celebrate. Remember. Fight Back.

Relay for Life is a program sponsored by the Center for Student Involvement and Campus Recreation and benefits the American Cancer Society

The objective of Relay for Life is to raise money for cancer research and cancer patients, as well as spread cancer awareness, celebrate the lives of survivors, remember those who lost their lives to cancer, and unite a community in the fight against cancer.
