If you have yet to take part in a Relay for Life event, then I hope that this year you’ll find your way to an event in your hometown. These events help the American Cancer Society help others get well, stay well, find cures and fight cancer head on!
What is Relay for Life?
“Relay For Life is a life-changing event that gives everyone in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease.
At Relay, teams of people camp out at a local high school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Because cancer never sleeps, Relays are overnight events up to 24 hours in length. Relayers do not have to walk all night, but each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event.”
Ready to Get Involved?
Visit Relayforlife.org and find a local event near you. You’ll be given the option to sign-up to fundraise, walk as a survivor, care giver, team captain or team member. You can also sign-up to volunteer at a Relay for Life event and contribute by setting up, cleaning up, assisting during the survivor dinner, etc. If you are not yet ready to jump in head first, you can still participate by donating to an individual, a team, or even the event itself.
There’s a number of ways for you to get involved and take a stand against cancer! Head over to Relayforlife.org now and help the American Cancer Society with their continuing efforts.
