Relay for Life
From April 2002 through April 2006, Phi Theta Kappa worked closely with the American Cancer Society for our 2002-06 International Service Program, Conquering Cancer.
The Conquering Cancer Service Program was Phi Theta Kappa's most successful International Service Program to date, with nearly 800 participating Chapters of Service. In 2003 and 2005, Phi Theta Kappa was recognized as the top collegiate contributor to the American Cancer Society's signature fundraising event, Relay For Life®.
Relay For Life rallies communities to celebrate cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost, and raise funds to eliminate cancer. Lasting overnight as team members take turns walking around a track, Relay inspires, entertains, and touches the hearts of all who participate.
Phi Theta Kappa encourages chapters to continue to support Relay For Life as part of the Society's Civic Engagement Initiative. Our goal as an Honor Society is to raise $10 million for the American Cancer Society by Phi Theta Kappa's 100th Anniversary Annual Convention in 2018. Phi Theta Kappa chapters have already raised nearly $4 million as of 2011.
