Welcome to Relay For Life 2014!

In the fight against cancer, silence is the last thing we need. Relay For Life at NYU is a great place to take action and make noise. The American Cancer Society Relay For Life movement symbolizes hope and our shared goal to end a disease that threatens the lives of so many people we love. If cancer has touched your life, participating in Relay For Life at NYU is a great way to take action and help finish the fight. This is your opportunity to honor cancer survivors, remember those we have lost, and raise funds and awareness to fight back and help end cancer forever.  Join us on May 3rd and be a part of this life changing event!
