After months of hard work and preparation, the time has finally arrived! The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Kenyon College will be taking place THIS WEEKEND, starting at 6PM this evening. Everyone is getting involved including sports teams, housing and res life, Greek life, and a local community team.

It is recommended that you bring cash to participate in games and buy food.
