Calling Eagle Nation!

We have 72 hours to go all in in the fight against cancer and become the #1 College Relay For Life event in Florida!

Relay For Life of FGCU has 72 hours to raise as much money online as possible beginning Tuesday, March 31. We are competing against the other collegiate Relay For Life events in Florida to see who can come out ranked first place online during the challenge. We need your help to show that we are the most dedicated to the fight against cancer and prove that we are #1!

On top of the amazing title of being the #1 Florida College Relay For Life event during the challenge, our outstanding fundraising can help you win the newest model of the iPad! An iPad will be awarded to the college participant in Florida who raises the most online during the challenge.

Here are some tips on how you can be the top participant and help our school be #1:

  1. Send fundraising emails and eCards by logging into your My Relay Dashboard  and click the “Ask for Donations” button under “My Fundraising Tools.” Don’t forget to include teachers, neighbors, co-workers, and anyone else you can think of who can help us be #1!
  2. Fundraise with Facebook and Twitter! Tell your family and friends that you are participating in this challenge on your social networks. Make sure to share the direct link to your fundraising page!
  3. Use the app. The official Relay For Life app lets you email, post to Facebook and Twitter, and even text your contacts right from your smartphone. We know you will have your phone with you no matter where you are during the challenge so use it to fight cancer.

Remember, every contribution matters - big or small. Will Relay For Life of Florida Gulf Coast University be #1?

Thank you!

American Cancer Society Relay For Life campus events serve as a powerful way for you to raise awareness and funds in the fight against cancer, from helping people facing the disease in your community to ensuring cancer is a thing of the past for future generations. The Relay For Life movement features campus and community events that offer an opportunity to honor the cancer survivors in your life, promote how you can reduce your cancer risk, and raise money to help find a cure. Today, with the support of thousands of student volunteers, the American Cancer Society is helping save more than 400 lives a day. And we won't stop until we end cancer once and for all!
