Why I Participate in a Relay Event
Personally, I have been affected by cancer. My aunt died from Ovarian Cancer, my close friend had cancer, and another close friend is fighting against Cancer. I want to support anyone in the fight against Cancer. It impacts everyone in the community, and finding a cure is the most important goal to achieve in this life time.
A Relay For Life event is not only a way to join my community to fight back against cancer, but it is also a way to inspire hope by raising funds and awareness to help those facing the disease.
Who I?m Participating For
My reason for participating in my Relay For Life event is personal. We all participate in Relay events because we?ve been affected by cancer in some way and because a Relay For Life event gives us the power to make a difference and fight back. This is my opportunity to honor cancer survivors, remember people we have lost, and help raise funds for groundbreaking research, information and services for people fighting cancer. I'm essentially participating for my close friends who have had Cancer and who have Cancer. I'm also doing it for my aunt who died.
Why I Support the American Cancer Society
Every day, the American Cancer Society helps people take steps to reduce their risk of cancer or find it early when it is easiest to treat. They provide free information and services when and where people need it throughout their journey to get well. They are investing in groundbreaking research to find, prevent, treat, and cure cancer, and are working with lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and rally communities worldwide to join the fight.
I have signed up to walk and fundraise in my local Relay For Life event. I hope you will consider joining my team and/or making a donation in support of my efforts.
Together, we have the power to help create a world where cancer can no longer claim another year of anyone?s life.
Thank you to my supporters!
