EUGENE, Ore. — Relay For Life is an annual run to help raise money for cancer research, and today several mascots danced at Autzen Stadium to promote the cause.
Dozens of people came out to do the “Harlem Shake” in front of the football stadium.
The organizers captured the popular dance on camera and plan to use it to draw attention to their cause and raise money to fight cancer.
The people behind the masks say it’s a fun way to shed light on such an important issue.
“It’s just to raise awareness. I mean everyone knows how serious cancer is, and how much it really sucks to lose someone to cancer, so it’s kind of a fun way to raise awareness. It’s fun for the kids, and it’s a good way to raise money as well,” said Mascots For A Cure Director Derek Zinser.
Mascots For A Cure was also promoting the Rad Run in May which will raise money for seven local charities.
