TAMIU Team Ready
for Relay for Life Friday

Some are cancer survivors. Some love or have loved someone who is standing strong against cancer…or represent someone in their absence.

All will be part of Team TAMIU, a group of Texas A&M International University students, faculty and staff taking part in the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life this Friday and Saturday in front of TAMIU’s Sue and Radcliffe Killam Library.

The Relay, now in its fourth year at TAMIU, hopes to raise awareness and support for cancer education.
