The purpose of Colleges Against Cancer shall be to remain dedicated to eliminating cancer by initiating and supporting programs of the American Cancer Society in college communities. Colleges Against Cancer focuses its efforts in four strategic directions: advocacy, cancer education, Relay For Life, and survivorship. CAC is meant to educate the community about cancer awareness and prevention as well as support programs and treatment options while also being devoted to the support and honoring of cancer survivors through various support programs and special events. CAC will host Relay for Life, the American Cancer Society's premiere fundraising event. CAC will work toward creating a community where cancer is no longer a life-threatening disease. It will also aim to advance the development of a community of leaders and volunteers responsible for and to their College and general community.
