Student Life and Phi Theta Kappa members are looking for your help. PTK and Student Life have been assembling a team for the Relay for Life of Central South County to help raise money for the American Cancer Society and take action against cancer. They are looking for additional team members and/or donations, as well as people to help hand out flyers and build awareness. Last year’s PTK team raised $600 and the goal this year is to raise $5,000.
The annual event is held at Lemansky Field, 1 Reith Street, Auburn, Mass. This year’s Relay begins at 6:00 p.m. on September 8, 2017 and ends September 9, 2017 at 10:30 a.m. Team members will take turns walking around a track or designated path and each team is asked to have a member on the track at all times to signify that cancer never sleeps.
“We’d love for you to join our team and walk with us. You can make it fun and wear costumes and do a theme, said PTK member and student Kyle Mondino.
The first 50 people to join this year’s team will receive a free T-shirt.
On PTK’s team page their message reads, “Cancer has touched many of us in some way, so we decided to fight back by raising funds and walking in our local American Cancer Society Relay for Life event. Please join our team or make a donation. Saving lives from cancer starts one team, one participant, one dollar at a time.”
To join the team visit, Relay.ACSEvents.org and click “Join a Relay,” then search the dropdown menu for “Quinsigamond Community College,” and click “Join Our Team.” That’s it!
If you have any questions or would like to pick up flyers, please stop by the Phi Theta Kappa Office, Room 349A or the Student Life Office.
