This past Friday, on April 29th, Molloy College had their annual Relay for Life event. Relay for life is an event that is known nation wide to help raise money for all types of cancer. All proceeds go to the American Cancer Foundation and are used directly towards patients and research. Friends Family, and survivors gathered around the Public Square building and walked to celebrate and remember loved ones.
Jessica Holdsworth, a sophomore at Molloy College was the Chair person for the Relay for Life event. When asked why she wanted to be apart of the committee her response was, that she have been doing relay for nine years now, and used to do it at her moms school. About six years ago her brother was diagnosed with a Brain tumor and relay for life really started to hit home. About four years ago Jessica was diagnosed with the same brain tumor. Thankfully both were Benign and they are living healthy lives. Jessica relay’s and is on the committee to make sure we raise money to help others in need who are affected by cancer. “Everyone at least knows one person with cancer and I love being on the committee because I get to be in charge of such a huge event that helps so many people.”
