Vassar will be holding its first ever Relay For Life this April, in which groups of students will run or walk for twelve hours in an effort to raise money for the American Cancer Society.
Sign ups will be this Wednesday in the College Center and again on November 19th.
Here is a message from ProHealth, the event's sponsors:
"The event will run for 12 hours (noon-midnight) on April 25, 2009 at Noyes Circle. Teams of eight to fifteen people will sign up to take turns walking, jogging or running around Noyes Circle. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Money is raised through team commitment fees (which also pay for a t-shirt), team and individual fundraising and sponsorship. Each participant is expected to raise a minimum of $100. The event will be a lot of FUN, with entertainment, food, speakers and the like!
You can sign up on our website at www.relayforlife.org/vassarcollege. Each team and participant gets a page within the site for fundraising. There, you'll also find information, sample letters to send to sponsors and more!
The deadline for team signup will be Friday, December 5th so that we may hold our informational team captain's meeting on Wednesday, December 10th.
ProHealth will be in the College Center this Wednesday, November 5th and on Wednesday, November 19 signing people up and answering any questions about the event. Other questions may be directed to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Many other colleges are already part of this effort and ProHealth is very excited that Vassar is going to join these ranks!"
Sign up in the College Center!
