On Wednesdays we wear purple. www.ugarelay.org.

Relay For Life at the University of Georgia is currently competing against 21 other collegiate Relays across the country to raise the most money in 3 days. All proceeds benefit the American Cancer Society.

The thing is, cancer is some funky stuff.

Like, toe fungus level funky.

1. We here at UGA Relay For Life are over it.

Kind of like how society is over the Kardashians.

2. We dream of literally making it rain all over the American Cancer Society.

In the name of cancer research, of course.

3. We have a real celebrity on our executive board.

Heroes fans: recognize this guy? How about now?

4. We're prepared to make cancer bounce faster than Justin Bieber in a rented Lamborghini.

5. We created the first Spirit Committee.

They think it's to keep up morale, but really it's just to get dudes to wear purple tutus.

6. Jay-Z once told us if he could name his number one problem, he'd probably say it's the fact that cancer still exists.

Second would be the fact that Kanye West is his best friend.

7. This is what it looks like when we fight back.

Don't pretend you're not impressed.

8. If we were in The Hunger Games with cancer, we all know how it would end.

9. We are the largest student run organization on campus.

10. Since the inception of our organization in 1999, we've raised over $3 million for cancer research.

You get a cure! And you get a cure! EVERYBODY GETS A CANCER CURREEEEEE!

11. We have a Torch of Hope that the Olympic torch literally cannot touch.

Mostly because the Olympic torch is an inanimate object, but you get it.

12. It's basically a Great Gatsby party when we celebrate survivors

I couldn't get through this post without a subtle nod to Leonardo DiCaprio-- if you're reading this I love you and please donate to UGA Relay.

13. And these are the reasons we Relay.

Celebrate. Remember. Fight Back.
