RELAY FOR LIFE OF JAMES MADISON UNIVERSITY GOES VIRTUAL

Harrisonburg, Virginia- Relay For Life of JMU will transfer their original plans of having their

in-person event on April 3rd, 2020 to a virtual event on April 17th, 2020 due to COVID-19.

COVID-19 is no match for Relay For Life of JMU, the second largest collegiate Relay in the

nation . The previously scheduled Relay For Life event at James Madison University, originally to

take place on Hillside Field, April 3rd, has now been transferred to a virtual online event that will

take place April 17th, 2020. Relay For Life of JMU plans to motivate participants in the week leading

up to April 17th with different missions for different days. Mission Monday is one of the days

planned in which the students have a goal to raise $2,000 to fund 100 1-800 calls for the American

Cancer Society, as it is one of the most needed services during this time of social distancing and lack

of resources. The students also plan to collect videos from current students, staff, faculty, and family

members of the JMU community to share on their, “Why I Relay” Wednesday. On Friday, April 17th,

Relay For Life of JMU will bring a unique and never before seen spin to their largest campus

fundraiser, virtually recognizing and honoring cancer patients, survivors, and their loved ones in the

virtual Opening Ceremonies, the Luminaria Ceremony, and the Fight Back Ceremony. For more info click HERE
