On April 19, psychology major Kaitlin Ames of Churchville participated in Stevenson University's Relay for Life Event. More than $38,000 was raised to support the American Cancer Society.
More than 500 Stevenson University community members gathered together in the Owings Mills Gymnasium to participate in the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life, a 12-hour overnight event, symbolizing a night in the life of someone fighting cancer, a disease that never sleeps.
Relay teams made up of friends, family, classmates, clubs and local businesses raised funds throughout the year and at the event to support American Cancer Society programs in cancer research, education, advocacy and patient services. Participants walked around the track all night long, determined that those who are facing cancer will be supported, that those who have lost their battle will not be forgotten, and that one day the world will be free of cancer.
During Relay For Life, the Stevenson community comes together to celebrate cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost to the disease and fight back to find a cure.
