Florida State To Host Relay For Life
March 26, 2004
Cancer survivor FSU President T.K. Wetherell will be walking the first and last laps of FSU's first on-campus Relay For Life, April 2-3, 2004, and he has challenged faculty, staff, alumni and friends of FSU to join "T.K.'s Team" to meet and exceed FSU's goal of $50,000 to support research for a cure through the American Cancer Society.
FSU now has sixty teams to participate in the Relay For Life, which begins Friday, April 2 at 3 PM and runs through Saturday, April 3 at 9 AM at FSU's Mike Long Track. Our students have been so successful in recruiting teams that there is no more room on the track!
Even though the track is full, you can still be part of the FSU Team effort by joining President Wetherell's virtual team. For more information, Click Here!
The power of Relay is that it allows a community to grieve for those lost to cancer and to celebrate the lives of those who have survived. For the newly diagnosed, Relay offers a chance to meet someone who has survived the same type of cancer. For the cancer patient in treatment, Relay provides an opportunity to share with others. For the long-term survivor, Relay brings a community's recognition of the struggle and closure to a trying time in life.
This year Florida State student-athletes will be participating in Relay For Life to raise money for the American Cancer Society. We invite everyone to join the student-athletes of Florida State in this very worthwhile cause, the signature activity for the American Cancer Society.
