UVM Raises Thousands for Relay for Life

The UVM community annually participates in the American Cancer Society fundraiser Relay for Life. This year, the April 19 event hosted on campus raised $85,120. The all-night event symbolizes the never-ending battle against cancer.

Sixty-eight percent of the total raised came from efforts by UVM fraternity and sorority chapters. Four hundred twenty-four fraternity and sorority members participated, raising $57,688.

Relay for Life events honor cancer survivors and caregivers and remember those lost to the disease.
