Colleges Against Cancer Facebook Challenge

Have you been affected by cancer in some way? Whether it be a friend, loved one, or maybe even yourself? If so, this may be something you'd be interested in! Colleges Against Cancer is holding a Reason To Relay Facebook Challenge to support Duquesne University's Colors of Hope Relay For Life Event! What does this mean? All you need to do is take a few minutes of your time to go to the Duquesne Colleges Against Cancer Facebook page (which could be found by typing this into the Facebook search bar), and support the cause! The challenge includes copying and pasting the challenge text that we've already provided for you, and posting a photo showing your personal "Reason To Relay" onto our page. Then, all you need to do is tag 10 of your friends to participate! As an added bonus, all of the photos that are shared on the Duquesne Colleges Against Cancer Facebook page will be compiled into a slideshow that will be projected during one of the ceremonies the night of our Relay For Life Event! (Saturday April 18th-Sunday April 19th from 5pm-5am on Rooney Field and A-walk)

This is an easy way to support our cause, with a great end result, and we'd appreciate all the support we can get from the Duquesne community!

Let's go everyone, its time to make our Reasons To Relay go viral!
