Approximately 1 in 3 women in the US will develop cancer in their lifetimes; while almost 1 in 2 men will have the disease. Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the U.S., exceeded only by heart disease.  Alarmed by these facts? Colleges Against Cancer (CAC) invite YOU to participate in the third Annual Macalester College Relay For Life.

Although Relay For Life may be relatively new at Macalester, check out these amazing numbers!

  • In 2009… 180 registrants, 19 teams and one cancer survivor participated in Macalester’s first Relay For Life raising $13,246 for the American Cancer Society.
  • Last year… 221 registrants, 27 teams, and five survivors attended Relay and raised $20,158.55.

This year, CAC is striving to register 300 people, 32 teams, eight survivors, and want to raise $25,000.  Please check out to see how you can get involved in helping CAC reach their goals!

This event is for: Alumni, Students, Staff, Faculty, Parents and Families and Public

Admission: $10 (additional fundraising is appreciated!)
