Any cash you have will need to be turned into a check and that check can be mailed directly up to our office, (Relay For Life of Windsor County, 55 Day Lane, Williston, VT 05495) where we will deposit that for you and get that money credited on the website.

You can also turn in your donations to us at our Wrap Up Gathering (Date and Time to be announced soon….keep your eye out for an email blast!)

What is Relay For Life?

Relay For Life is a community event where people come together to honor cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against a disease that has already taken too much. Friends and family, coworkers, companies, and other groups form teams and those teams raise money to help fund research and patient care through the American Cancer Society. The funds you raise truly make a difference in the fight against cancer - just ask one of the nearly 14 million cancer survivors who will celebrate another birthday this year!

Relay For Life teams “camp out” during the event at their site and take turns walking around the track. Team tent sites can be decorated and teams can sell food, items, and activities at their site for day-of fundraising. Events are between 12 and 24 hours long, and because cancer never sleeps, each team is asked to have at least one participant on the track at all times.

The Mission of the American Cancer Society Relay For Life:

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life represents the hope that those lost to cancer will never be forgotten, that those who face cancer will be supported and that one day, cancer will be eliminated.

Fundraising:

Through their fundraising involvement, Relay For Life participants ensure the lifesaving mission of the American Cancer Society is supported. Volunteers can find fundraising ideas, incentive program details, and encouragement through a number of channels including here on RelayForLife.org and on Relay Nation, an online community developed just for Relay For Life participants. To learn more, click HERE.

  Have you raised a minimum of $100 so you can be part of the HOPE Club and receive your 2015 commemorative t-shirt?

Luminaria:

The Luminaria Ceremony is a ceremony of remembrance and hope. It symbolizes a time to grieve for those we have lost, to reflect on our own cancer experience or that of those closest to us, and to find hope that tomorrow holds the promise of a cancer-free world.

For a fun and inspirational article on how to sell Luminaria bags, click HERE.

Luminaria bags are available from your Community Manager and can be picked up at Team Captain meetings or contact: Svea Miller at svea.miller@cancer.org

Cancer In Our Community:

Cancer can affect anyone, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity or economic background:

  • One out of two men and one out of three women will be diagnosed with cancer.
  • There has been a 20% decline in cancer death rates since 1991. That means more than 1.3 million lives saved
  • There are 14.5 million cancer survivors in the US. By 2024, there will be almost 19 million.
  • In the last 20 years, breast cancer death rates have declined 32%
  • Practicing good nutrition habits, not using tobacco products and being physically active can prevent two thirds of cancer deaths.

 

Where the Money Goes:

Funds raised by the American Cancer Society Relay For Life support the organization’s programs, which focus on four distinct areas: research, education, advocacy and service. Check out this great VIDEO on where your money goes for more information!
