Relay For Life

Help Fight Cancer !

The Notorious C.U.R.E

Cancer also known as “The nation’s biggest health concern,” is a rapidly growing disease within our community as well as the world. What is even more saddening is that there has yet to be a cure found for cancer. The University of Memphis is teaming up with the Relay for Life Organization to not only raise awareness, but to raise profits that go towards cancer research.




For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Relay for Life Organization, here’s a little background information, The Relay for Life began after Dr. Gordy Klatt walked and ran for a total of 24 hours around a track in Tacoma, Washington in 1985 and alone he raised $27,000 which all went to the American Cancer Society. In 1986 340 supporters joined in on the overnight event which has now grown to become a worldwide event.



Our team The Notorious C.U.R.E, is advocating for those who are battling cancer, those who have battled cancer, and the angels who braved cancer. We are asking that you share our love for the cause to find a cure and get involved as well. You may do this by donating to our group by following these simple steps:
