A recent tradition by the North Central College athletics department of raising funds for the American Cancer Society will continue Saturday, Sept. 29, during the Cardinals’ football game against Elmhurst College.

As is the case with many across the country, members of the Cardinal football program have been impacted by cancer in recent years. One team member’s experiences of watching several members of his family fight a battle, which has claimed so many casualties, have served as his own rallying cry to press forward and pursue his dreams.

Walk, remember, raise funds at Relay for Life

For the ninth year, North Central will host Relay for Life, an American Cancer Society event that gives people in communities a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and raise funds to fight the disease.
