Rain Couldn’t Stop Relay for Life

Hundreds of students, faculty, staff and community members came together last weekend on UMW’s Fredericksburg campus for Relay for Life, an annual event to raise awareness for cancer research, celebrate survivors and honor and remember those who fought cancer.

Despite wet weather, more than 400 people gathered in Great Hall on Saturday, April 21 for the opening ceremony. Many stayed throughout the night for the Survivor Lap, Luminaria Ceremony and various contests and activities.

According to The Bullet, UMW’s Relay for Life has raised more than $47,000.
