HIGH POINT, N.C., April 9, 2019 – High Point University’s Colleges Against Cancer raised more than $11,000 for the American Cancer Society at a Relay for Life event held on campus on April 7.
HPU’s Colleges Against Cancer fights for a cure for cancer by volunteering for, instating and supporting programs of the American Cancer Society.
“Raising money for such a worthy cause was an incredibly humbling experience,” said Zach Quimby, HPU’s Colleges Against Cancer president. “In the end, knowing the funds we raised will go to those who are battling or have battled cancer is incredible. Cancer has affected all of us in one way or another, and it is heartwarming to know we all had a part in the fight for a cure.”
This year’s event featured presentations from student and staff cancer survivors, food, games and activities throughout the evening. The event ended with a Luminaria Ceremony, honoring those who are currently battling or have battled cancer.
