Held in conjunction with the American Cancer Society, the Alpha Nu chapter of the national fraternity Alpha Sigma Phi will host the annual Westminster College Relay for Life from 10 a.m. – 10 p.m., Saturday, May 2 at Burry Stadium.
In 2014, the brothers raised $25,000 for the Society. According to Adam Stahon, student and senior chair for Relay for Life, their goal is to exceed that number this year. Westminster's Relay for Life is one of the longest running college Relay events in the state of Pennsylvania.
“Our aim is to help the American Cancer Society as much as we can,” shared Stahon. “There are people in our area who are depending on the money we raise…and each year, it’s remarkable to see the community come together to help out those effected by cancer.”
Lawrence County consistently places in the top 10 in the country for money raised per capita.
In addition to the daylong walk, participants can take advantage of the live music, corn hole tournament, food, fastest pitch competition, survivors’ lap, and survivors’ dinner by registering online at www.relayforlife.org, visiting a local American Cancer Society office, or emailing Stahon at firstname.lastname@example.org. Those who wish to donate but are unable to attend may make their gifts online.
Alpha Sigma Phi, founded at Yale University in 1845, established the Westminster chapter in 1939. The fraternity aims to be the co-curricular organization of choice for discerning undergraduate men through the provision of an enriching brotherhood experience and a full range of character and leadership development opportunities.
