Lycoming College will host the 10th annual Relay For Life from 6 p.m. Friday, March 28, to 6 a.m. Saturday, March 29, in the college’s Recreation Center. All donations will benefit the American Cancer Society. Opening ceremonies begin at 6 p.m. Friday and will be followed by the Survivor Ceremony at 6:30 p.m. The Lycoming chapter of Colleges Against Cancer hopes to raise $29,000 in donations.

This year’s race is ’90s-themed, so the participating clubs and organizations will be dressed in outfits highlighting bands, television shows and toys from that decade. There will be entertainment, activities, themed tables, snacks and competitions, including volleyball, dodgeball and a wing-eating contest.
