Relay for Life provides an opportunity for the campus and community to come together to raise funds and awareness for cancer research, remember loved ones lost, and celebrate the lives that have been saved.
The 2015 Notre Dame Relay for Life takes place 6 p.m. through midnight Friday, April 17, at the Compton Family Ice Arena. This year’s event takes place over six hours rather than overnight as in previous years.
One of the University’s three sponsored charitable initiatives, Notre Dame’s Relay for Life has raised over $1.2 million for the American Cancer Society, growing from a grassroots initiative to a national, award-winning event. For the second year in a row, Notre Dame in 2014 won the nationwide Number One Youth Per Capita Award and the Gordy Klatt Number One Collegiate Power of Hope Award.
