Friends for a Cure

HOW WE RELAY:

We Relay as a team of friends and family members, walking the track "relay style" for 24 hours. We transfer our team's pink-ribbon PEZ baton as different "legs" walk for Friends for a Cure. We camp out overnight and enjoy the community feel of the Relay For Life of the Wissahickon Valley.

Throughout the year, our team does many things to raise funds for the American Cancer Society, including sponsoring a Triva Night in January, Laps for Life at Maple Manor Swim Club on Labor Day weekend, and selling baked goods on Election Day.

WHY WE RELAY
We relay because we know so many who have been diagnosed with this awful disease, including several of our own FFAC team members. We raise money for the American Cancer Society to help provide services to cancer patients and to fund research to find a cure!

Join us in the fight against cancer by joining a Relay Team or donating to a team member! Or come support us at Relay May 19th-20th, 2017 at Upper Dublin High School.

Together in the Fight,

Stacey and Wendy (Co-captains of Friends for a Cure)
