Time: 6:00 pm  to  12:00 am
Location: Hennessy Center

One Day | One Night | One Community | One Fight

Students, faculty, staff, friends, family, and community members are invited to participate and raise funds for the American Cancer Society at Dominican College’s annual Relay for Life event. You can make a difference!

$10 At The Door (Or no charge if more than $10 raised on fundraising site)

The event will raise awareness and funds for the American Cancer Society to support research and provide services for patients. Cancer is something that hits home for many of us here at Dominican College, and we want to do all we can to help eliminate it.  Your support would help us immensely!

Our 2019 Relay for Life theme is Disney!
