Relay 2015 may be over, but here are some ways you can stay involved with Relay this summer:

  • Send out thank you's to your family and friends who have already supported you.
  • Are you close to the next fundraising level? Ask someone new for a donation to put you a little closer to your goal
  • Reach HOPE Club if you haven't already.  Those white t-shirts are a great way to sport Relay gear and stay cool in the sun - plus slipping on a shirt can help lower your risk of skin cancer! Don't forget to slip, slap, slop, and wrap! Slip on a shirt, slap on a hat, slop on sunscreen, and wrap on sunglasses.
  • Consider a post event fundraiser like one of these!
  • Aim for Grand Club or All Star Club
  • Share your Relay pride on Facebook.

ACS Day at the Ballpark! Come out to see the Southern Illinois Miners play the Lake Erie Crushers on Wednesday, August 26th at 7:05 PM. $7 of your $8 ticket will come back to your team AND cancer survivors get in free!
