Relay for Life
Sat. March 31, 2012
We are making a difference by teaming up to participate in the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life.
At the event, our team will camp out overnight and take turns walking around the track to raise money and awareness to help the American Cancer Society create a world with less cancer and more birthdays.
Saving lives from cancer starts one team, one participant, and one dollar at a time. Our team is doing our part to make sure that cancer never steals another year of anyone's life.
Please join our team or make a donation. The impact we can make together is much greater than what any of us could do alone!
