Each year the American Cancer Society helps thousands of people nationwide who are battling cancer and the group’s annual Relay for Life helps honor cancer survivors and remember those who lost their lives to the terrible disease.
You can help support the College of Medicine Relay for Life team and raise money to benefit the American Cancer Society.
The medical school team is participating in a Relay for Life walk May 6 and 6 at Lake Nona High School and hopes to raise $2,500.
As part of the effort, College of Medicine Relay for Life organizers have established “Penny Wars.” Here’s how the war works. Each floor of the college and students have a designated jar in front of Student Affairs. Each floor should collect as many pennies as possible until May 3 and place them in the appropriate jar. Here’s where the “war” comes in. You can place silver coins (nickels, dimes, quarters) or dollar bills in an opposing team’s jar. Pennies count toward a positive total. Silver coins and dollars are subtracted from the total number of pennies collected. The winning team will receive a delicious homemade dessert party.
And come out to Lake Nona High from 2 p.m. May 5 until 8 a.m. May 6 to cheer on our walkers!
