The American Cancer Society Relay For Life movement 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. With the support of thousands of volunteers like you, the American Cancer Society is helping save more than 500 lives a day. Please join us and take action against a disease that has taken too much!


Question of the week:

What is our Relay Store?

Our Relay Store is a place where Relay participants can sell items (ex: handmade items, pies, jam, necklaces etc.) and put their profits towards their Relay For Life fundraising goals. Arrive early to the meeting to sell your own items and/or to purchase items from your fellow Relayers. If you are planning on selling something, please make a clear sign that indicates what you are selling, including the price, and please bring change
