Relay for Life at Lasell will be taking place on the night of March 30th in de Witt Hall. In anticipation of the event, 99 members of the Lasell community have split into 20 teams, all with the goal of raising money for the American Cancer Society.

Several Lasell sports teams have formed relay teams, including the cross country, rugby, lacrosse and women’s volleyball teams. In addition to student-athletes, multiple campus organizations, like CAB, Hope for Humanity, and SGA have joined the effort that has raised over $7,000 so far!

The top teams are Dennis’ Menaces ($3,880), Brady’s Bunch ($1,345), and Lasell Women’s Soccer ($700).

The event is an overnight relay race, running from 7 P.M. on the 30th until 7 A.M. on the 31st. During that time, teams are asked to have at least one representative on the course at all times, showing support for cancer awareness and research.

The individual and team leader boards have some tremendous figures that still have room to grow with more than three weeks remaining until the event. Students Erin Norton ($2,355), Ryan Brady ($655) and James Hooper-Hamersley ($620) are at the top of the individual leader board. They’ve each exceeded their personal goals, with Norton surpassing hers by over $1,000.

Participants raise money through individual pages, and many of them compete in honor of loved ones who have been affected by cancer. If you’d like to donate, visit the Lasell’s Relay for Life page, and choose a person you’d like to donate to. It’s also not too late to start a team of your own or join an existing one.
