On April 8, NSU will host Relay for Life, an annual fundraiser for The American Cancer Society. Beginning at 6 p.m. teams will camp out around Gold Circle Lake for 18 hours with team members taking turns walking around the lake.
At least one person from each team must be on the track for the duration of the event. Members will switch places by passing a baton.
“It’s meant to celebrate those who have won the fight against cancer, to remember those we’ve lost and to fight back against the disease,” said Travis Checketts, event chairman.
Teams can also raise funds throughout the night by selling baked goods and hosting other activities.
The theme for this year’s Relay for Life is cartoons, said Checketts. Each team will pick a cartoon and decorate their camp site and dress up based on the theme.
There will also be games and music throughout the night.
Registration ended on March 15, but anyone can donate money by visiting www.relayforlife.org/novafl.
