2012 Relay for Life- Men’s Soccer Report

May 11 – It was a very emotional start to the weekend as many UCSB Organizations participated in the 24 hour long Relay for Life held at Pauley Track. The funds raised for this event save lives by funding cutting edge cancer research. The Men of the Gaucho Soccer Team came to show their support for the cause and honor victims and cancer survivors alike. The day was filled with events, music, and camaraderie, but the night reminded every participant why they were there with a heart wrenching candlelight vigil for those who have lost their lives to this terrible disease. Matt Glodack, Student Athlete Advisory Board Representative and the team’s Relay for Life captain, expressed how important it was to the team to be able to participate in this event. “So many of us have been impacted by loved one’s who have battled cancer, it meant a lot to us to be able to walk in their memory and support everyone there walking for the same reason.”
