Relay For Life is an internationally recognized event that honors and raises money for individuals who have been affected by cancer. Teams of participants circle around a track to commemorate the efforts of the event's founder, Dr. Gordy Klatt, who, in 1985. raised $27,000 for his cancer patients by running 83 miles in 24 hours.
Our event at the University at Buffalo is a 12-hour, overnight event at Alumni Arena that was supported by just under 2,000 participants. The event will include fundraisers from Relay For Life teams, performances, games and entertainment, and ceremonies dedicated to those who are fighting cancer and those we have lost to cancer.
The event is held overnight because
cancer never sleeps, so neither will we.
