Join us on the purple carpet for the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Tri-Town Kick-Off Rally scheduled for February 12 at 6:00 pm.
On February 12, the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Tri-Town will officially get underway as cancer survivors, caregivers, families, schools, companies, faith-based and civic organizations gather in the ORR High School Auditorium from 6:00 to 7:30 pm for a kick-off rally to launch their fundraising efforts for the year.
The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is a life-changing event that gives everyone in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease. People from all walks of life come together with a shared mission of furthering the American Cancer Society’s vision of creating a world with less cancer and more birthdays.
At Relay, teams of people camp out at a local school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Because cancer never sleeps, Relays are overnight events. Teams do most of their fundraising prior to the event, but some teams also hold creative fundraisers at their camp sites during Relay.
Mark your calendar for the 2014 Relay For Life of Tri-Town scheduled for June 13 – 14 at the ORR High School Track.
Anyone interested in forming a team, volunteering for this wonderful Tri-Town event, joining the planning committee, or just learning more about Relay For Life is encouraged to attend the Kick Off Rally on February 12 at 6:00 pm.
