Hi Everyone! This year, Barnard Network of Pre-Medical Students will be participating in Relay for Life for the second time. Relay for Life is an amazing fundraising event for the American Cancer Society, and this year, it’s happening all day on Columbia’s Low Steps on April 9th. There will be many other teams present, with activities at each of their booths. This year, we plan on having a booth at Relay for Life that will include getting henna tattoos and selling treats! Our goal for fundraising this year is $500 and we hope that we can reach that goal. All proceeds will go towards the American Cancer Society. As pre-health students, most, if not all of you, know someone who has been affected by cancer. It’s important that we contribute to fundraising efforts as this will greatly benefit everyone who has been affected by cancer.
If you would like to become more involved, please sign up for our team “Barnard Network of Pre-Medical Students” at this website: http://main.acsevents.org/site/TR/RelayForLife/RFLCY16EA?pg=entry&fr_id=72914. Registration fee to sign up for a team right now is $10, but this $10 will be put to good use by the American Cancer Society. If you sign up to be on our team, you do not necessarily have to come to Relay for Life; your signing up is already great support for us. But we’d love to see all your faces at our booth on April 9th! If you choose to not sign up, you can still come to our booth and get a henna tattoo or purchase a treat. One thing to keep in mind: registration fees will increase as we approach the date of Relay for Life. So while the fee is $10 right now, it may go up later.
We thank you all for your support and we look forward to seeing all your faces at Relay for Life! If you have any questions, please contact our Relay for Life Team Captain, Vivian Mao (firstname.lastname@example.org).
