Donate to Relay for Life to take part in Dress Down Day

The Relay for Life Student Affairs Staff and Friends team will host a “Dress Down Day” fundraiser on Friday, April 11.

As part of this event, staff and faculty members are invited to donate $5 for the privilege of “dressing down” (wearing jeans or other casual attire) the day before the event.

This event will have the dual purpose of raising money for the American Cancer Society’s fight against cancer and promoting CWRU staff and faculty members’ commitment to this cause.

There are two major ways to participate:

1.     Make a secure donation online to the Relay for Life Student Affairs Staff and Friends team

2.     Drop off a $5 donation (bring exact change) at one of the “Dress Down Day” locations, which include:

  • The Office of Student Activities and Leadership in Thwing Center, room 110
  • The Career Center in Sears Building, room 229
  • The Department of Human Resources in Crawford, room 304

Donations will be collected through the day of the event. Those who do not want to participate in Dress Down Day but would still like to be involved in Relay for Life should consider joining either the Student Affairs Staff and Friends team or another faculty and staff team. All faculty, staff, friends and family are welcome to participate.
