The cancer-fighting students of WWU are kicking into high gear as they prepare for Relay next month!!


Lots of different fundraising activities are happening in and around campus, karaoke, garage sales, and the St. Xavier House had their yard “spooned”.  (see the Relay For Life of WWU Facebook page for a photo) recently in the name of raising funds to fight cancer.   


Now is the time for you to commit and register!  We hope to be walking with many of you on May 14th and 15th!
