PLU Relay for Life Wins 5th National Top 10 Award
In April 2013, more than 400 Lutes participated in PLU’s Relay for Life, not only raising cancer awareness but also raising enough money to gain major national acclaim. Again.
Relay For Life is the nationwide signature activity for the American Cancer Society, with thousands of events each year across the country. During the Relay, families, schools, companies, hospitals and other community groups create teams who take turns walking around a track all night to raise money to fight cancer.
On a personal level, many Relay participants honor family, friends and loved ones impacted by cancer.
PLU’s Colleges Against Cancer club and the PLU Relay for Life also received this award for events in 2007, 2009, 2010 and 2012.
