More than 400 faculty, staff, students, and community members – including President Richard V. Hurley and his wife, Rose – were at UMW April 6 to build awareness and collect funds for cancer research and to celebrate cancer survivors. The annual all-night UMW Relay for Life raised more than $46,000 for the American Cancer Society this spring. “UMW’s Relay for Life 2013 was more than just a magnificent night of celebration, remembrance, and fighting back against cancer,” said Katie Sue Van Valkenburg ’14, a member of the student Relay for Life planning committee. “Relay for Life represents a full year of dedication to helping such a worthy cause.”
