January 5, 2024 – Santa Fe College students and staff are invited to join the 2024 Relay for Life of North Florida. This year’s event is scheduled to take place on Friday, April 26 in Alachua. The team hopes to raise over $65,000 for the American Cancer Society.

The Relay for Life is a volunteer-led fundraising walk for the American Cancer Society. Teams form and fundraise throughout the year and then come together for the walk, where they setup booths to fundraise as well as take turns walking and participating in fun activities. This year’s event opens with a special ceremony honoring local cancer survivors and ends with a luminaria ceremony to remember those who have been lost.

Barbara Little-Harsh, Santa Fe College Friends Team Captain, has a personal connection to the event, explaining, “I began to relay in memory of my dad who passed away from Mesothelioma in 2001, shortly after I graduated from college and started working here at SF. I also relay in honor of all my Santa Fe College friends who are battling this disease, and in memory of those we’ve lost in our SF family through the years. Relay gives me a way to fight back against all forms of cancer that our friends and family have had.”

The Santa Fe College Friends team is a collection of employees, students, alumni, retirees and their families. The team invites you to join or help raise funds to fight cancer, a disease that has affected us all. Please visit the team fundraising page at
