Colleges Against Cancer (CAC) is a nationwide collaboration of college students, faculty, and staff dedicated to eliminating cancer by working to implement the programs and mission of the American Cancer Society. We raise awareness and funds through numerous events during the year, including brunches, performances, and other events, such as Relay For Life. Relay For Life is the largest fundraiser put on by American Cancer Society, and it is run by various, schools, universities, and communities all over the world annually. Our event here at Northeastern University brings together over 3,000 students, faculty, staff, and community members each year. Colleges Against Cancer works closely with the Relay For Life Event Leadership Team, and has an important role at the event, however the two groups are seperate in some ways as well. By joining Colleges Against Cancer, you can be a part of a dedicated group of students that plans, advocates, fundraises, crafts, and volunteers in a number of ways throughout the year, all in the name of fighting cancer. For any information about Relay For Life specifically, please visit the Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/neurelayforlife/
