Waynesburg University to Hold Mini Relay for Life

The event will raise money for the American Cancer Society and will benefit programs such as Road to Recovery.


From 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on April 17, the Colleges Against Cancer club at Waynesburg University plans to hold its ninth annual Mini Relay for Life in the university’s Johnson Commons. The event is a benefit for the American Cancer Society, with a theme this year of “Relay Around the World.”  Planned attractions include a balloon artist, magician, karaoke, dance performances and more.

“[Mini Relay] is a great way to educate, promote awareness and honor survivors and lost loved ones,” says Assistant Dean of Student Services Kelley Hardie in a press release.

Proceeds from the event will benefit Road to Recovery and other programs in Greene County with a focus on cancer research and prevention. According to Hardie, the goal for this year is $20,000, which can be reached through online fundraising by the participating teams as well as money raised on the day of the event.
