Donate to Relay for Life

Relay For Life at Doane University is right around the corner, and we need your help.

As a Doane alumnus, you know how important Relay For Life is for Doane students, faculty, staff, and the Crete community. For one night every year, the community comes together to battle one of the world's deadliest diseases.

Cancer has affected everyone in some way. There is no other group of diseases in the United States that affects more people. According to the American Cancer Society, about ½ of all men and ⅓ of all women in the US will develop cancer during their lifetimes.

Doane students take these concerning numbers to heart and put a great deal of time and effort into raising money for Relay For Life.

When you donate to Relay For Life through Doane University, 100% of your tax-deductible donation supports the American Cancer Society to fund groundbreaking cancer research, crucial patient care services, and prevention and early detection programs. When you donate, you help save lives.

You are invited to see your gift at work on Friday, April 13th beginning at 6 p.m. at the Fuhrer Fieldhouse as we gather as a community to support this very important cause.

Warm regards,
The Advancement staff at Doane University
