Thank you to all of the participants, volunteers, University staff, and sponsors for your support of the 2013 Relay For Life of George Washington University!
We had one of our most successful events in the history of Relay at GW! There were over 900 participants with organizations from every corner of campus and members of the Greater GW community. We started a new tradition by welcoming special guests from Camp Kesem, and continued Relay favorites like Midnight Pizza, the Mr. Relay contest, tie-dye, and Monster Pong. Everyone came together to raise over $61,000 in the fight against cancer!
Check out our video, made by this year’s committee, which really captures what the Relay of GW is all about:
Everyone has until May 4th to fundraise for a Relay For Life Incentive. Everyone who has raised $175.00 or more by that date will receive an e-mail certificate to redeem your incentive.
To motivate you to increase your fundraising and help us “Kick Cancer Off the Island,” we having one last fundraising challenge for the season!
Starting Saturday, April 27th, until Saturday, May 4th, the person who raises the most money online will receive a pair of left baseline box tickets to the Washington Nationals versus the Chicago Cubs at Nationals Stadium on Friday, May 10th 2013 at 7:05pm. The 2nd and 3rd place fundraisers in this challenge will win a RELAY SWAG BAG.

The journey to end cancer starts with a single step. The American Cancer Society invites you to take that step with us by joining the global Relay For Life movement. When you walk to end cancer at a Relay event, it's your opportunity to not only honor cancer survivors and remember loved ones lost, but also to raise awareness about what we can do to stay well from cancer and raise money to help fuel the world's largest walk to end cancer.
