Students Relay for Cancer Research

Thousands of Cornell and Ithaca College students pulled all-nighters on Saturday for a perhaps more deserving cause than an unwritten paper or next-day exam.
The American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life of Cornell and Ithaca College was held in Barton Hall this past weekend to raise money and awareness for all types of cancer research.
The Relay was kicked off by a celebratory “Survivors Lap,” as men and women distinguished by their purple shirts displaying “survivor” in bold print marched triumphantly, fueled by a steady applause from thousands of supporters.
