Welcome to the 2015 Relay For Life of Wadsworth! 

JOIN US for our Wrap Up Meeting Thursday, August 13th 6:30pm at the Wadsworth Masonic Lodge! This will be a potluck so bring your favorite side dish to share. We look forward to reflecting on this year's event with you!

The 2015 Wadsworth Relay For Life motto is:

'Sporting Healthy Choices with Powerful Voices'

Sports (of any kind) is the decorating theme for the team tents ...and Healthy Life Choices is the educational message that each team tent will share.

Join the Wadsworth Community in "*Sporting* Healthy Choices with Powerful Voices" against cancer! Our theme this year will be focused on health and wellness activities, showing how you can get you and your family involved in a healthy life style right here in your community! All are welcome to attend this FREE family friendly event.

ALL team captains & team members... if you have a fundraiser you would like to share with everyone (garage sale, bake sale, Scentsy type of home party, etc) drop me an email with the info and I will gladly post it on the Local Fundraiser link.

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is the world's largest and most impactful fundraising event to end cancer. It unites communities across the globe to celebrate people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and take action to finish the fight once and for all.
