Congratulations for all of your fundraising efforts so far. Don't forget, our event season doesn't end until August 31st, so there is still time to make a difference!  Here is our Summer Challenge: The person who raises the most money between now and August 31st will win a cool bag filled with Relay Swag!  
Here are some great ideas:

*Dedicate a star to remember or honor a loved one touched by cancer that will hang in Mall of America’s atrium. During the event we will assemble a three-story art installation, consisting of 50,000 Relay For Life stars, each representing a story and accompanied by a donation from individuals across the globe.

*Sell MileOne Car Raffle tickets for a 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLA250 SUV!  Drawing isn't until October so there is still time to sell raffle tickets.  Each ticket sells for $10 each and anything that you sell will go towards your fundraising record!  There is no obligation or cost to take the tickets to sell, you just turn in the stubs and the money from any that you sell, and any unsold tickets.  It is a great and easy way to raise additional money to end cancer.  Please contact me at nancy.miller@cancer.org if you would like to get some tickets!

*Sell Washington Nationals vs. Baltimore Orioles tickets!  The American Cancer Society is teaming up again with the Washington Nationals for a great fundraiser! For the Washington Nationals vs. Baltimore Orioles game on Thursday, August 25th, $5 from every ticket that you sell will go toward your 2016 Relay For Life fundraising total! Click here for 2016 ACS Night at the Nationals fundraiser flyer for more details!

 

Keep those fundraisers going, and share any upcoming ones (nancy.miller@cancer.org) so that we can help get the word out!

Your gift and fundraising efforts will provide the funding needed to speed lifesaving research breakthroughs, and to provide critical programs to cancer patients and their families 24­/7 when they need help the most.

 Your gift, no matter the size, will make a real difference for someone with cancer.

Last year alone, generous supporters like you helped The American Cancer Society:

 

Give answers and support to nearly 1 million people via our 24­/7 hotline

 

Provide free lodging for nearly 30,000 cancer patients traveling away from home for treatment

 

Give nearly 200,000 rides to patients who needed a way to get to cancer treatment

 

Invest $177.5 million to fund groundbreaking cancer research


These successes—every single one of them—was driven by the tenacity and devotion of people like you. We are all capable of amazing things. And it is our collective power of humanity that is our greatest weapon against cancer.

We are all in this together!
