Once upon a cure

Music, food, games and a puppy-kissing booth were just some of the activities at this year’s Relay For Life at Wright State University.

Relay For Life is a grassroots, community-based team event where participants raise money to fight cancer while walking several miles with their teams.

This year’s event was kicked off with a personal speech from Wright State’s provost Susan Edwards, who has breast cancer. “The money that you raise tonight goes towards understanding a better cure,” said Edwards.

The event was Disney-themed and included a survivor and caregiver walk, a luminaria ceremony and closing ceremony to unify participates and commit to fight for a cancer-free world.

The relay took place in the Student Union Apollo Room on Feb. 8. Organizers hope to donate $16,000 to the American Cancer Society.
