The Relay For Life of Yorktown has set a goal to be an ACS CAN Club in 2016 (40 CAN members)! We are already up to 8,  but need your help to reach our goal and make sure that cancer is a top priority in our State Legislature, Congresss and the White House.  ACS CAN is the nation’s leading cancer advocacy organization that is working every day to make cancer issues a national priority.

ACS CAN, the nonprofit, nonpartisan advocacy affiliate of the American Cancer Society, is holding lawmakers accountable for their words and their actions. We demand that our leaders not only talk about fighting cancer but take real steps toward decreasing the number of people suffering and dying from cancer. Use your voice and sign up today! Be sure to put the Relay For Life of Yorktown in the Relay For Life section for our event to get credit.
