Students, faculty, volunteers, even those affected by cancer came to Halton Arena to celebrate Relay for Life on Friday, April 4. The annual event is put together in order to spread awareness about cancer and remember those that have unfortunately passed away because of it.

During the event, there were a handful of key note speakers that either spoke about their own personal experience with cancer or have a relative that has gone or is going through the tough battle.

Many organizations, including Greek life, clubs sports and the honors college set up tables with activities to raise money for cancer research and treatment.
