Join Vanderbilt’s Relay For Life Team

April 19, 2011

Mark your calendars for American Cancer Society‘s Relay For Life, a 24-hour family event where each team member takes turns walking/running around the track. Relay For Life is a time when teams of people come together to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost and raise awareness for the fight against cancer. During the walk, there are several events that occur to honor cancer survivors and remember those who lost their battle.

Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center is pleased to be fielding teams for both the Williamson County and the Davidson County relays. Whether you’re a Vanderbilt faculty/staff member, a patient, family member or simply a friend of Vanderbilt, we would love your participation.
