More than 20 years ago, one man took it upon himself to raise money to support the efforts of the American Cancer Society.

Today, more than three million Americans participate in Relay events nationwide. One day. One night. One community. Relay For Life is about celebration, remembrance, and hope. As part of its ongoing mission of service to the community, CU Winds members participated in this year’s Relay for Life event. Held at Barton Hall (7:00 pm-7:00 am), the event was a joint effort of Cornell and Ithaca College seeing over 25,000 participants and raising close to $200,000 for Cancer research.
