Loyola students to host virtual Relay for Life event

Loyola University Maryland

April 17, 2020


The Relay for Life of Loyola University Maryland will host a virtual event on Saturday, April 18, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Videos from the virtual event can be viewed on Loyola’s Relay for Life Instagram and Facebook pages.

Every year Loyola University Maryland’s student-organized Relay for Life event raises thousands of dollars for the American Cancer Society. Last year the committee raised $116,335. It’s a signature event that the students work all year to create, and it culminates in an event that is full of energy and emotion as funds are raised for the cause.

The virtual event will include Facebook lives and recorded videos throughout the day featuring messages of hope, introductions to Loyola’s Relay for Life executive team, recorded survivor and caregiver speeches, a luminaria video, recorded videos of performances from various clubs at the University, and other informational videos.

The Relay for Life event at Loyola University Maryland was scheduled for Saturday, March 28, but was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
