Cancer hasn't stopped. Neither will we.

Relay for Life is a meaningful event for the Dominican College Community. We are committed to creating a campus culture that supports the American Cancer Society's efforts for continuous research, patient services, and a cancer free future.

Our 2021 event raised over $6,500 for the American Cancer Society.
