August 1-31: Relay for Life

Posted on August 21st, 2013

August 1-31:  Relay for Life:  Relay for Life, the world’s largest nonprofit fundraising event, involves teams of people gathering to celebrate those who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease by raising money to support the American Cancer Society’s lifesaving mission and its vision of a world with more birthdays.  Teams take turns walking or running laps while aiming to keep at least one team member on the track at all times.  Relay for Life events are held in more than 5,100 communities throughout the US and 20 other countries from April through August.  For more information, contact:  American Cancer Society:  www.cancer.org or www.relayforlife.org.
