UNC-CH Relay for Life

At Relay For Life events, communities across the globe come together to honor cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against a disease that has already taken too much. The funds raised truly make a difference in the fight against cancer.

Relay For Life teams camp out overnight and take turns walking or running around a track or path at a local high school, park, or fairground. Events are up to 24 hours long, and because cancer never sleeps, each team is asked to have at least one participant on the track at all times.

Sweeps Sponsors the Event

Sweeps was thrilled to sponsor this event at UNC this year. We gathered tables and chairs from across Chapel Hill and delivered them to the Eddie Smith Field House, giving the organizers a much needed break in their already overloaded logistics agenda. All in, Sweeps donated $300 worth of labor hours to this event, and we are proud to have helped out.

The event was a blast. Members of the UNC Football Team were dunked in a dunking booth, there was a kickball tournament, water balloon toss, late night trivia, 5am Mario Kart tournament, and much more.

This year, the UNC-CH Relay for Life raised $79,205.28 to fight cancer. WAY TO GO!
