Relay for Life This year UTM’s Relay for Life Committee had a goal of raising $20,000 for the American Cancer Society. They exceeded this goal and raised over $25,000.

Who do YOU relay for? One of the highlights of our Relay for Life was the long wall of posters displaying whom we Relay for. Our sister April Hawkins Relay’s for her mother Jennifer Hawkins who lost her battle with breast cancer. April did a great job setting up our booth and helping us raise money for the event.

Traveling Max Every year at Relay for Life, entertainer Traveling Max has many activities for every one at Relay to participate in. Pictured in the bottom right, sisters Danielle Johnson and Niki Hensley were dancing in a Congo line around the gym. Relay for Life was a memory many of us will never forget!
