Nearly 300 students participated in Colby’s 11th annual Relay for Life, a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society in which participants walked for a total of 10 hours between April 10 and April 11. The event raised more than $18,000.

“This is a uniting event for the campus, and it is good to see so many people come together for one cause,” said Franco Pacheco, a cancer survivor and assistant coach for the Colby swim team.
