RELAY FOR LIFE: The seventh annual Relay For Life, a walk-a-thon style fundraiser held by Columbia’s Colleges Against Cancer chapter to benefit the American Cancer Society, will take place on April 17 from 10 a.m. – 10 p.m. in the Blue Gym in the Dodge Physical Fitness Center. Members of the Columbia and Morningside communities as well as cancer survivors will once again come together to celebrate those who are surviving, remember those who have been lost, and fight back against the disease that affects one in every three people worldwide.
After six years of being held on the Low Libary steps, this year’s relay will take place indoors. As a result, this year’s traditional luminaria ceremony will feature colored glowsticks instead of candles.
