Relay For Life

Annually, the McMaster Social Sciences participates in Relay for Life a 12-hour overnight fundraising event with the McMaster community that celebrates life and fights cancer.

At Relay, teams gather with cancer survivors at their local school and take turns walking laps all night.

Teams stay overnight in the decorated tent city, united to enjoy music, food, activities and entertainment. Relay for Life takes place in March.

Every year The MSSS and our Blu Cru team take part in Shinerama.


Shinerama is Canada’s largest post-secondary school fundraiser, involving more than 50,000 students from over 70 university and college campuses. Shinerama raises money and generates awareness for Cystic Fibrosis (CF), a disease affecting the lungs and the digestive system. It is the most common, fatal, genetic disease that affects young Canadians with 1 in every 3,600 babies born with it every year.

Over the past three years the MSSS Blu Cru team has alone raised over $65, 000.00!
