Relay For Life

For several years on the ONU campus, walkers have joined the battle against cancer during the American Cancer Society Relay For Life. This celebration of life brings together numerous groups and individuals concerned about cancer in a unified effort to fight back.

Each spring, teams of students, faculty, staff, and community members gather at the King Horn fieldhouse for the annual Relay For Life event. Relay For Life aims to celebrate anyone who has battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and empower all to fight back against the disease. During the event, various activities take place including Relay Idol, Mr. and Ms. Relay, basketball, and cornhole tournaments, and much more.

Relay For Life reminds us that progress has been made in the fight against cancer, and that everyone who participates is making a difference. Highlighting the event is the luminaria ceremony, held to honor cancer survivors and to remember those who have lost the battle against cancer. Hundreds of luminaries line the track and are left burning to remind participants of the incredible importance of their contributions.

If you wish to receive information about how to form a team, register as an honored survivor, or become involved with Relay For Life at ONU, please contact us at We are always looking for energetic students who wish to be involved as committee chairpersons or team captains.
