About Us

The Colleges Against Cancer chapter at MIT is sponsored by the American Cancer Society and works to fight cancer through grassroots advocacy, prevention and early detection education, Relay For Life, and activities honoring cancer survivors.

Here are some ways our CAC chapter makes a difference:

  • By working as advocates through the ACS’s Legislative Action Center
  • By promoting the Great American Smokeout, breast cancer awareness, sun safety, and healthy lifestyle choices within your campuses and communities
  • By running Relay For Life of MIT
  • By inviting cancer survivors to participate in Relay, planning survivor dinners, and hosting cancer support groups

MIT CAC is part of a network of more than 175 other colleges and universities nationwide. These chapters share ideas and inspiration through phone calls, regular emails, and a monthly newsletter.
