WHY I PARTICIPATE IN A RELAY EVENT
I initially signed up for relay for life because it would be
fun to do and a great way to make a difference. I also had a great
grandmother who died from cancer when i was younger but once we
talking about creating our relay page I began some minor researching
different voices of cartoon characters from shows I used to watch
when I was younger and learned that John Fiedler (1925-2005; voice of
Piglet from Winnie the Pooh) died from cancer.
WHO IM PARTICIPATING FOR
My reason for participating in my Relay For Life event is personal.
all participate in Relay events because weve 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 victims in my family such as my great grandmother and
remember people we have lost and help raise
funds for groundbreaking research information and services for people
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 anyones life.
