Fund the One

Hi Great West Relayers!

First, we want to thank you for all of the hard work so far this Relay season. Keep up the hard work and continue to help you Paint Your Communities Purple!

We are excited to announce our 2016 Fund The One Competition, which are set to kick off February 8 across our 12-state division. What does Fund The One mean? Each year, research grant requests are sent to the American Cancer Society for possible funding. Only the top tier grants are deemed “exceptional”, and only a fraction of those can be funded with available funds. When we #FundTheOne, we are focused on raising needed funds to ensure the next research grant has the funding it needs!

As part of our Fund The One promotion, we’re looking for your selfies! Send us a selfie in Relay gear holding up your index finger (#1!) to and you may be featured on our Facebook page or on!

There are many opportunities for your event to be recognized, and we wanted to make sure you were the first to know about it! Here’s just an overview of our 4 competitions to help #FundTheOne:
