UT's Relay for Life officially begins today at the Black Cultural Center.
In its second year on campus, Relay for Life organizers hope to make this year's event bigger than last year's. They hope to accomplish this goal by providing more opportunities for student involvement.
Students can get involved with Relay for Life beginning with the kick-off event, which begins at 6:30 p.m. The event plans to be beneficial and informative for attendees.
Several businesses from the Strip, such as Buffalo Wild Wings and McAlister's, are donating free food to the event.
Additionally, kick off attendees will be more informed about the organization and its cause by the end of the night.
After viewing a short video about Relay for Life, students will hear from a cancer survivor. To end the event, a mini-luminary ceremony will be conducted to remember people who have been affected by cancer.
Relay for Life is scheduled to take place in April and is already one of the largest philanthropic events on campus.
