Colleges Against Cancer Organizes LVC’s 13th Annual Relay for Life
03.18.14 |
Lebanon Valley College and Colleges Against Cancer will host its 13th annual Relay for Life event March 21–22 in Arnold Sports Center. Registration begins at 3 p.m. and the opening ceremony starts at 4 p.m. The event officially ends at 4 a.m. March 22 with a closing ceremony and big screen TV giveaway.

This year’s theme is “Cancer: Not Here, Not There, Not Anywhere” and activities will be based on the Dr. Seuss-related theme.

LVC alumnus Amanda Musser (pictured at right) will speak during Opening Ceremony. Musser spoke at last year’s event after being diagnosed with breast cancer on her 30th birthday and is proudly coming back this year as a survivor.

Events will begin each hour, with fun activities such as an Instagram photo scavenger hunt, dodgeball tournament green eggs and ham eating contest, and Dr. Seuss trivia session. Traditional Relay events such as free haircuts for those willing to donate their hair to cancer victims, the Luminaria walk, and a fight back ceremony will also take place. Senator Mike Folmer, a cancer survivor who represents the 48th District in the Pennsylvania Senate will share his story during the Luminaria Ceremony.

LVC students participate in Relay for many reasons – often because they have lost a loved one to cancer.

“I Relay for a high school classmate who passed away from cancer shortly following graduation,” Jocelyn Davis ’15 said. Davis is a vice president of Colleges Against Cancer, which organizes the event. “Courtney was diagnosed with AML, a cancer of the blood and bone marrow, on Dec. 24, 2010. Following her diagnosis, she underwent four rounds of chemotherapy over the span of six months.”

This year’s goal is to donate $49,000 to the American Cancer Society from 66 teams of participants. To preregister or to make a contribution, visit www.relayforlife.org/palvc.

“Today, over a year since Courtney’s battle ended, I remember her smile more than anything—the strength and courage she had while fighting cancer was truly inspiring. Relay For Life is the perfect opportunity to remember how lucky I was to know Courtney Sprenkle,” Davis said.

The American Cancer Society is the nationwide, community-based, voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives, and diminishing suffering from cancer, through research, education, advocacy, and service.
