The Saint Mary's University Colleges Against Cancer group invites the community to its 2014 Relay for Life - to be held 6:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. Saturday and Sunday, April 12th and 13th, in Saint Mary's Gostomski Fieldhouse.
Teams comprised of friends, families and co-workers will join together for this fundraising effort, which celebrates people who have battled cancer, remembers loved ones lost, and provides an opportunity to fight back against the disease.
Last year more than 150 people participated in the event which raised more than $10,000 for the American Cancer Society.
Team members will spend the night walking around SMU's indoor track from dusk to dawn to represent the 24-hour fight against cancer. Each team raises money for the American Cancer Society.
Activities are planned throughout the night including a silent auction, student performances, a newlywed game, late-night Zumba and a chance to win a Fitbit.
