Every year New York Institute of Technology participates in Relay for Life a movement started to show not only awareness but also to show support for those who are affected by cancer. This event is always held at the Old Westbury campus, and the Manhattan campus take buses to take students to Old Westbury and back to the city.
We stay up all night, we have some people come up on stage and tell us their story, we have some survivors come up on stage and talk about their struggle and we also have fun doing all of this. The NYIT community comes together as a whole connecting both campuses with this one annual event.
Last Year we had football, basketball, laser tag, singing, dancing and Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity Teletubbies. Yes you read right ladies and gentlemen they have their own Teletubbies who helped them raised money for a one of their members who had cancer and was struggling to pay his medical bills, that’s good fraternity.
Here’s a video of last years Relay
This year is only going to be better. Sign up sheets for the buses are in the 1849 building on Boradway second floor on the SGA office door. We are leaving April,19,2013 and coming back the next day.
Sin up because the buses are getting filled!
Thank You and Stay Safe
