- Relay for Life
This is an annual event where members of the Habitat for Humanity Campus Chapter, alumni, and the entire campus community work together to frame a house on the Moravian College campus. We work on building the exterior of a house that we will be delivered to our local affiliate, Habitat for Humanity of the Lehigh Valley. This is our chapter's biggest event of the year! For more information, please contact Moravian College's Habitat for Humanity president, Andrew Benson.
This event, which generally takes place in early November, during Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, teaches participants about the problem of hunger in the world. As participants enter, they take a ticket out of a basket. On their ticket is a random assignment – either low income, middle income, or high income. The numbers are roughly proportionate to the distribution of wealth in the world; in other words, there are far more low income than middle, and far more middle than high. Participants then eat a meal, learn about hunger, and share thoughtful, reflective conversation that illustrates the inequalities in our world.
Moravian College's Relay for Life is a spring event sponsored by Colleges Against Cancer, the collegiate organization affiliated with the American Cancer Society. Relay for Life is a 12-hour experience that raises money for the American Cancer Society's cancer research, patient support, and awareness efforts. If you have any questions about this event, please contact Britney Kartasheff, The Colleges Against Cancer president.
