Relay For Life Organizers Offer Team Discount This Week

Although Nebraska Wesleyan’s annual Relay For Life event isn’t scheduled until April 9, organizers are already offering special incentives in an effort to boost this year’s fundraising goal.

 A discounted team registration fee of $5 will be offered this week, October 12-15. Organizers hope to increase the number of teams participating this year. Teams can sign up in Great Hall from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Those who want to start a team on their own can go to and click on “sign up” and then click “start a team.” Those interested in joining an existing team can visit the same website and click on “sign up” and then “join a team.”

 This year’s Relay For Life goals are to have 60 teams participate and raise $40,000.

 In addition to the team discount, NWU faculty, staff and students are encouraged to eat at Raising Canes on the first Wednesday of each month. Those who dine between 5-7 p.m. and mention Nebraska Wesleyan University will have $1 of their meal donated to the NWU Relay For Life.
