Raising money is the ultimate goal of the American Cancer
Society’s Relay For Life. 100% of money raised goes to the American Cancer
Society. You can view exactly how the ACS spends their money on our link to the
American Cancer Society.
This year our goal for Relay for Life 2012 is $100,000. We
chose this goal because this year is the 10-year anniversary of Relay at UNI.
We also have set goals for each team registered in this year’s Relay to raise
$1000, which is approximately $100 per person.
The key to
raising money is to ask everyone you know for a donation. Ask your friends,
family, neighbors, teachers, church members, and even people you do not know.
Most people are willing to donate money to the American Cancer Society, so make
sure you say the money we raise for the UNI Relay For Life is all donated to
the American Cancer Society.
We have made it very simple for you this year to raise your
$100. Use our registration and fundraising website to e-mail friends and family
letters we already have written for you. If you e-mail or mail those letters to
at least 15 friends and family, you will raise more than your $100.
We are also sponsoring a few contests for teams to
participate in. Check out the links below to see if you can participate in one
of the challenges. Teams must register on our scheduled Bank Night. See the
Calendar of Events for more information about Bank Night. Also, more than one
team of 8-15 people can register for the challenges. Each team must be a
constituent of the same house, hall, sorority or fraternity, or student
organization to register together for the competition.
We also partner with local businesses to hold various
fundraising events. We have events at Buffalo Wild Wings, Cold Stone Creamery,
and many other local businesses. Be sure to watch University News to stay up to
date on upcoming fundraisers around Cedar Falls!
