St. Olaf Cancer Connection (a.k.a. SCC) is a service organization designed to provide cancer-related opportunities in the areas of volunteering, cancer education and awareness, outreach and fund-raising for not only the St. Olaf community, but also residents of Northfield and surrounding areas. SCC plans, organizes, and runs the Northfield area Relay For Life. This year, St. Olaf has put on a variety of events including Relay for Life, a Breast Cancer Survivor Panel, Stovember (“No Shave” November), Coaches vs. Cancer, a Holiday Gift Drive for the Children’s Hospital, and other education and outreach events.

Relay for Life was on April 22nd from 6PM to Midnight and was filled with inspirational speakers, wacky games, and incredible musical and dance performances. Together, over 200 participants raised more than $21,000 for the American Cancer Society. This money will go to fund the American Cancer Society’s life-saving research, awareness, and outreach. We are so thankful for the support of St. Olaf and the Northfield community, as well as the hard work and dedication of our incredible volunteers!

New members are welcome at any time! For more information about our events and how to get involved, please contact any of the presidents:
