Relay For Life
Doane College is now in its tenth year of hosting an annual Relay For Life event. Last year, participants were able to raise nearly $70,000 for cancer research. This amount earned Doane first place in the High Plains Division and first in the nation for Per Capita Fundraising for colleges and universities with populations between 1-3999 students.
Relay is the trademark service event of Doane, with nearly half of the student body as well as large cross-sections of the faculty and staff participating in some form. Students, faculty, staff and community members come together to fight the disease that has touched all of their lives. The committee who plans the event works throughout the school year to increase awareness about cancer risks, treatments and research.
This annual event has special ceremonies to honor survivors, remember those who have lost their battle, inform about new American Cancer Society services and build hope that a cure is not far off. Together, Doane College and Saline County are helping win the battle with cancer. This year Doane is striving for a fundraising goal of $75,000. Please help with achieving our goal on the way to a cancer-free future.
