Halloween Monster Dash Fundraiser with Relay for Life

This past Friday PHC celebrated Halloween with its first ever 5K. Organized by Michael Marcel, PHC Chronic Disease Chair, and Pavane Gorrepati, PHC Nutrition Chair, The Monster Dash: Run for Your Life, brought 75 Yalies dressed in their craziest, funniest, and spookiest Halloween costumes to the start line on the New Haven Green. The Monster Dash was a huge success, raising $366 through over 75 donations to Yale Relay for Life, a yearly campus-wide overnight fundraising walk for the American Cancer Society. The mission of Relay for Life is to raise funds to improve cancer survival, decrease the incidence of cancer, and improve the quality of life for cancer patients and their caretakers. PHC was proud to be able to support the American Cancer Society, a nationwide voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer.
