Relay For Life
For the sixth year on the Ohio Northern University campus, walkers will go around the clock in 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.
Teams of students, faculty, staff and community members will gather on the Tundra for an overnight Relay from 6 p.m. on Friday, April 30 until noon on Saturday, May 1. 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 will take place including Relay Idol, Mr. and Ms. Relay, volleyball 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 evening is the luminaire ceremony, held after dark 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 throughout the night to remind participants of the incredible importance of their contributions.
