We are the American Cancer Society Colleges Against Cancer chapter at UW-Madison. Sign up for Relay For Life at relayforlife.org/uwmadison. Follow us on Twitter @CACUWMadison!
American Cancer Society Colleges Against Cancer is a nationwide collaboration of college students, faculty, and staff dedicated to eliminating cancer by initiating and supporting programs of the American Cancer Society in college communities.
The American Cancer Society is the nationwide community based voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lived and diminishing suffering from cancer through research, education, advocacy and service.
We are the CAC chapter at the University of Wisconsin-Madison! Throughout the year we host four large-scale events on campus:
Breast Fest (A week of awareness and educational activities for breast cancer awareness month in October)
GASO (The Great American Smokeout...Encouraging people to quit smoking for one day, and for life)
Skin Cancer Awareness Day (To inform college students about the dangers of skin cancer and how they can protect themselves on Spring Break in March)
Relay For Life of UW-Madison (www.relayforlife.org/uwmadison)
We meet bi-monthly on Tuesday nights at 7:00 pm in the Humanities building. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions!
We encourage your participation on this page, but we want to ensure that everyone stays on topic. We welcome your thoughts, comments, suggestions and questions, but when you post, make sure your postings are of general interest to most readers. Profanity, racial and ethnic slurs, and rude behavior like disparaging personal remarks will not be tolerated. We reserve the right to remove any postings... including spam, advertising and non-cancer related topics. Though we appreciate your passion for funding cancer, we reserve the right to remove any postings that promote fundraising opportunities for other organizations. We will strive to present opposing viewpoints and keep this site as interesting, diverse and multi-sided as possible.
