More than 50 teams and 400 participants will be involved this evening in the fifth annual Relay For Life of Culver. The overnight event begins at 7:00 p.m. ET at the Multipurpose Building on the campus of Culver Academies.
Student organizers have set a $130,000 goal for this year’s event, which will be held indoors and outdoors. Many of the events will be staged in the Multipurpose Building on the corner of Indiana 10 and Academy Road, but activities and vendors will also be located in the grassy area along Indiana 10. Relay walkers will be able to turn their laps inside, outside, or a little of each.
Fair Oaks Farm of DeMotte, Indiana is this year’s sponsor. Fair Oaks Farm is owned and operated by Culver parents, Michael and Sue McCloskey.
The Academies-hosted Relay was the first in Indiana to be student organized and has raised more than $490,000 for cancer research since 2008. Donations to the Relay for Life may be made here.
