St. Olaf Cancer Connection will be celebrating our biggest event of the year, Northfield’s annual¬†Relay for Life¬†event coming up on¬†May 2nd¬†in Tostrud!¬† Relay for Life is an American Cancer Society event to bring communities together to celebrate cancer survivors and caregivers, remember people lost to the disease or currently fighting, and inspire participants to fight back against cancer.¬† Relay is a 12 hour event beginning at¬†12:00pm¬†on¬†May 2nd.¬† The day is filled with with games and competitions (with prizes of course), entertainment from campus bands and local Northfield performing groups, food, and teammates taking turns walking laps around the track with community members.¬† Because it’s a team event, individuals are not required to stay the whole time, but it’s so much fun you’ll want to stay as long as possible!
