THE SANTA CLARA
April 23, 2015
Over 35 teams of students and local organizations attended this year’s Relay For Life to raise funds for cancer research and cancer patient resources.
This past weekend, the Kenna Hall lawn was filled with live music, games and obstacle courses. Participants included survivors, supporters, students and members of the greater Santa Clara community. The event raised over $24,000 for the American Cancer Society.
The event kicked off Saturday with a personal speech by junior Aaron Poor, who shared his experience with childhood cancer.
The “Survivor Lap,” which honors cancer survivors, their loved ones and caretakers, officially opened the relay. As participants walked the track, teams sold snacks, refreshments and other goods. Campus performers including Hipnotik and Supertonic provided the day’s soundtrack. During the night, dedicated luminarias eluminated the path.
