UTT Hosting Relay For Life Today And Tomorrow

The University of Texas at Tyler Colleges Against Cancer student chapter will hold an American Cancer Society Relay For Life 7 p.m. - 7 a.m. April 18 - 19 in the UT Tyler Herington Patriot Center gym.

There will be guest speakers, music and a time to remember those lost to cancer. A luminaria walk ceremony is set for 9 p.m. Friday, April 18.

Relay For Life is a fun-filled overnight event designed to celebrate cancer survivorship and raise money for research and programs. About 25 university teams will participate this year. The public is invited to attend.

This year's university event was recently named in memory of the late Steve Wilson, information systems and communication director, and Dr. Darrell Pogue, associate professor of biology, both university employees who this year died of cancer.
