The entire campus community is encouraged to “go purple”—the color of hope—during Relay for Life Purple Week, Feb. 25 through March 1.

The 2013 ND Relay takes place 6 p.m. Friday, April 12, through 9 a.m. Saturday, April 13, at a new location—the Compton Family Ice Arena.

It’s a chance for the campus community to come together to raise funds for cancer research, benefiting the American Cancer Society.

Honorary chairpersons are Marc Burdell, director of the Alumni Association and survivor of follicular lymphoma, and Teresa Kennedy, Ryan Hall freshman and survivor of dermatofibrosarcoma.

Family-friendly activities during the overnight event include an open skate, inflatables, cookie decorating, face painting and balloon twisters. There will also be a silent auction, live musical performers and a broomball tournament, in addition to team fundraisers and activities. To register, visit relay.org/ndin.

A full list of fundraisers, including Daffodil Days, an online auction, Trivia Night and more is available online at relay.org/ndin. Visit us on Facebook at Notre Dame Relay for Life.
