Davidson College will host its second annual Relay for Life overnight Friday into Saturday, to raise money for the American Cancer Society. The fun at Richardson Stadium begins at 7pm Friday and continues until 7pm Saturday, with music, games, and activities. Says co-chair and Davidson senior Taylor Whitsett: “It is a time for us to fight back against a disease that has taken so many loved ones from our lives, and to celebrate those who have survived their battle.” Read Lincoln Davidson’s preview on THE GUIDE»
