Why I Participate in a Relay Event

Because I know I will make a difference in the fight to end cancer. I know that by raising funds and walking in the American Cancer Society Relay For Life event, I will help save lives from cancer.

It's amazing to think that millions of people will be diagnosed with cancer this year. Somebody close to me may be one of them.

A Relay For Life event is not only a way to join my community to fight back against cancer, but it is also a way to inspire hope by raising funds and awareness to help those facing the disease.

Who I’m Participating For
My reason for participating in my Relay For Life event is personal. I first learned about this horrible disease when I was in 2nd grade and found out my grandmother had pancreatic cancer. I didn't know what that meant at the time. My grandmother and stepmother died from cancer. My mother and father are both survivors. We all participate in Relay events because we’ve been affected by cancer in some way and because a Relay For Life event gives us the power to make a difference and fight back. This is my opportunity to honor cancer survivors, remember people we have lost, and help raise funds for groundbreaking research, information and services for people fighting cancer.

Why I Support the American Cancer Society
Every day, the American Cancer Society helps people take steps to reduce their risk of cancer or find it early when it is easiest to treat. They provide free information and services when and where people need it throughout their journey to get well. They are investing in groundbreaking research to find, prevent, treat, and cure cancer, and are working with lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and rally communities worldwide to join the fight.

I have signed up to walk and fundraise in my local Relay For Life event. I hope you will consider joining my team and/or making a donation in support of my efforts.

Together, we have the power to help create a world where cancer can no longer claim another year of anyone’s life.

Cheer me on!

Thank you to my supporters!
