Members of LIU Promise are bringing “Relay for Life,” to students and faculty alike to help raise money for the American Cancer Society.
The year 2019 is LIU Post’s 6th Annual Relay for Life event. Over the past 5 years, this event has raised more than $200,000 for the American Cancer Society. The event will take place on Thursday, April 4 at 7 p.m. in the Pratt Recreation Center.
Joseph Vernace, senior associate director, and the rest of the Relay for Life Committee, are planning the event. The Committee is hard at work planning another spectacular event for the campus community to come together in solidarity for a cause that impacts people everywhere. There will be keynote speakers, live performances, raffles, and more. Traditionally, more than 750 people become a part of Relay for Life.
The Relay for Life community is looking to raise $50,000 this year. All students, faculty, and staff are invited to join the event for the evening and are encouraged to help them reach their goal by raising funds in their own family, friend and community circles. Relay for Life is open to the entire community, of students, faculty, and staff with friends and family as participants fight for a cure. Those interested can register at www.relayforlife.org/LIUPost.
