Relay for Life on April 30... Hundreds of Gusties will participate in the 2011 Relay For Life of Gustavus Adolphus College. Colleges Against Cancer is set to host the annual event, which will take place in Lund Center beginning at 7 p.m. on Saturday, April 30, and ending with a closing ceremony at 7 a.m. on Sunday, May 1. Gusties will celebrate the lives of those battling cancer, remember the ones we have lost, and fight back against a disease which has taken too much. Reflecting a cancer patient’s journey—it may be long, you may be tired, but there is a sense of hope as the sun rises in the morning—nearly 50 teams will keep one member on the track throughout the night. The event, which is open to all members of the Gustavus community, is the signature fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. Last year the Gustavus event raised over $30,000 for the American Cancer Society and this year’s event is on track to exceed this. The American Cancer Society uses fundraising dollars to fund cancer research and provide patient services to those affected by cancer. This year’s event will kick off with a "celebrate" ceremony at 7 p.m. honoring all those who have survived cancer. The ceremony will include stories from Gusties who have survived cancer. We invite you to encourage all survivors in your life to join us for this experience. At 9:30 p.m. we will remember those we have lost to the disease through the lighting of luminary bags. Each luminary bag will display the name of a cancer survivor or friend or family member lost to the disease. Luminaries may be purchased for $10 from any Relay participant or online at www.relayforlife.org/gustavusadolphus. The event will wrap up on Sunday morning with the announcement of the fundraising total. In addition to walking the track all night, participants will enjoy music from live bands, games, food, and prizes. For more information, to register a team, or to make a donation, please visit www.relayforlife.org/gustavusadolphus or contact Samantha Rother by e-mail, srother@gustavus.edu. For information about cancer, access the American Cancer Society’s (ACS) website at www.cancer.org or call the 24-hour toll-free number, 1-800-ACS-2345.

MAYDAY! Conference Debates Death Penalty... Sister Helen Prejean, CSJ, author of the critically-acclaimed book Dead Man Walking, and Robert Blecker, professor of law at New York Law School, will keynote the 31st annual MAYDAY! Peace Conference at Gustavus Adolphus College on Wednesday, May 4. This year’s conference is titled “Executing Justice: Debating Capital Punishment.” Sister Prejean, who will lead off the conference at 10 a.m.in Christ Chapel, started speaking out against capital punishment after beginning a prison ministry in New Orleans and later wrote Dead Man Walking based on her experiences. Blecker, in his 1:30 p.m. keynote address in Alumni Hall, will argue the other side of the debate in his speech, titled “The Worst of the Worst of the Worst: How Should They Live & Why Should They Die?” Based on 13 years of interviewing convicted killers, and hundreds of hours inside maximum security prisons and on death rows, he makes a powerful case for the death penalty as retribution, but only for the “worst of the worst” offenders. In addition to the keynote addresses, the MAYDAY! Peace Conference will once again host a high school oratory competition. The final round of the competition will take place at 3 p.m. on Eckman Mall (weather permitting), with orators vying for a $750 first prize. All events related to the MAYDAY! Peace Conference are free and open to the public. For more information about the conference, contact the Gustavus Office of Marketing and Communication at 507-933-7520 or marketing@gustavus.edu.
