Why We Formed a Relay For Life Fundraising Team

Welcome to our team page! Cancer has touched many of us in some way, so we decided to fight back by raising funds and walking in our local American Cancer Society Relay For Life event.

I always thought this was an important cause, and participating in Relay would be a fun way to help others, but didnt join until my nephew, Chris, was diagnosed in 2012 with Non Hodgkins Lymphoma. He had surgery at Children's in Chicago and the Doctors and Nurses took excellent care of him, through out his many, many treatments. Im very happy to say that Chris is cancer free!!!!
 
As a team, we are taking action to help eliminate cancer as a major health problem. At our Relay event, we will take turns walking around the track to raise money and awareness to help the American Cancer Society in their lifesaving mission.

I have participated in Relay ever since.

I was diagnosed in July 2015 with colon cancer, after my first screening colonoscopy. I had surgery in August and they removed all of the cancer, so no addtional treatment was necessary. I was lucky.
 
Please join our team or make a donation. Saving lives from cancer starts one team, one participant, one dollar at a time.

Here’s how recent money raised has been put to incredible uses.

august 2018

Funding potentially lifesaving cancer research grants.

1.34 million in 2017

Nearly
452 thousand in 2017

Cancer has touched all of us in some way. And we want to stop this disease in its tracks. We'll spend the next few weeks fundraising for the American Cancer Society. Then, on the day of the event, we'll honor the lives lost to cancer, celebrate survivors, and support the caregivers who so selflessly help others.  

Together, we'll be a part of making a difference in this important cause.
