Since UACCM has been so supportive of Relay for Life so far, we thought we'dlet you know where we stand! To date, we have collected nearly $2,200, 0r 44%, of our goal of $5000! Of the current total, $352 came from our recent bake sale, $700 came from jeans days, and nearly $375 came from the UACCM Speech Department! Speech Instructor Pat Bailey incorporated the fundraiser into her lesson concerning persuasive speaking (and no, she didn’t bribe students with extra credit!) She then very generously matched the $186.12 donated by her students. Thank you so much Ms. Bailey and speech students for your donations! The remainder of funds collected has been donated by many other other departments on campus.

If you'd like to make a donationg, luminaries are available for purchase to honor those who are battling, have won, and have lost the fight against cancer. Forms are available outside the Institutional Advancement Office for anyone interested. There are also several coin cans spread throughout campus. Your loose change can go a long way! Thanks again to everyone for your support!
