Relay for Life Reaches New Levels

Relay for Life Reaches New Levels

Date: Tuesday, April 17, 2018
This year’s Relay for Life Team, and the community they lead, raised almost $10 000 above their goal amount.
The 2017-2018 SJU Relay for Life Team – and the community they led – raised almost $45,000 leading up to and during the March event. Raising a record amount of $43,122.31 for the Canadian Cancer Society, this year’s event has pushed the lifetime fundraising amount by St. Jerome’s University to $250 000!
This event continues to be a staple in the community, and one that symbolizes hope and strength for many.
With support, donations and time given by many, this event was a success thanks to the St. Jerome’s University students and staff, teams from our fellow college-universities and main campus, clubs and associations across campus, sponsors, and others within the community.
Interested parties can continue to donate until April 23, 2018, at
