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:

If someone wants to donate a gift card or sponsor the event, who do you give that to or contact?

We have letters you can give someone with our Tax ID number on it for gift card and etc. donations.  If someone wants to sponsor our event we have a sponsorship packet we can send them.  Janet Olson ( is the registration chair so you can send her any potential sponsors and she'll happy to help however you need it.  Also, the money from any sponsors you bring to the Relay goes towards your team's fundraising dollars.
