Tri-Kap Does Relay for Life

On Saturday April 28th, the brothers of Tri-Kap participated in the annual Dartmouth/Hanover Relay for Life to raise money for the American Cancer Society. The brotherhood was very excited about this event. Together we raised $635, adding to the over $40,000 total donated for the relay.

Hundreds of people from Dartmouth and the surrounding community contributed to the event. People arrived at 3 PM on Saturday and walked through the night until 8 AM Sunday morning. Memory bags commemorating lost friends and family lined the track of Leverone Field House and spelled “HOPE” on the bleachers of Memorial Field to remind all of the participants why we walk. The survivors’ lap motivated everyone by demonstrating that our efforts do make a difference and save lives every day. Thank you to all of the brothers who walked and contributed, and thank you to everyone in the community who helped make a profound difference in the lives of others by participating in Relay for Life.
