The theme is Curing Powers Unite to Defeat Cancer, and each student team is a different superhero.
Relay is a our official school-wide service project, and a part of the American Cancer Society's mission.
The money raised by Relay supports research, awareness programs and services such as the Hope Lodge at Moffitt.
