It’s easy to become part of the ‘Relay For Life’ movement and help finish the fight against cancer. All you need to do is sign up to participate or volunteer at your local Relay For Life event.

Utica College & SUNY POLY are both hosting Relay For Life events. 

SUNY POLY hosted their first Relay For Life event, Friday, April 1st from 7 PM – 7 AM for the campus community.

Utica College hosts their second annual Relay For Life next weekend, April 8th from 6 PM to 6 AM.

If you are an alum from either Utica College or SUNYIT/SUNY POLY and want to help your college, make a contribution online through the school’s website. You can choose to support a particular team, participant or just the event itself. But, remember to make your donation. No matter how much is raised, the real loser will be cancer.
