More than 47 teams from the University of San Diego plan to participate in this weekend’s Relay for Life in the fight against cancer.

Teams made of up fraternities and sororities, accounting and nursing students, Intervarsity Christian Fellowship and many other USD clubs and organizations are expected to raise more than $23,000 in the 24-hour event.

During the Relay for Life, participants camp out overnight and take turns running around a track. Each team is asked to have at least one participant on the track at all times.

USD’s event begins at 6 p.m. Friday, March 21 in the Mission Field adjacent to the main (east) entrance to USD and behind the parking structure.

The media contact during the event is USD student Sarah Giddens who can be reached at (619) 248-3597.
