Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature activity. It offers everyone in a community an opportunity to participate in the fight against cancer. Teams of people camp out at a local high school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Relays are an overnight event, up to 24 hours in length.
Relay For Life is a life-changing event that brings together more than 3.5 million people to:
Celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer. The strength of survivors inspires others to continue to fight.
Remember loved ones lost to the disease. At Relay, people who have walked alongside people battling cancer can grieve and find healing.
Fight Back. We Relay because we have been touched by cancer and desperately want to put an end to the disease.
This year, as a fundraiser, Ellay decided she would try to make a kit to give away to folks who donate. You can donate as little or as much as you'd like and she will send you the links to download the kit. If you do the Relay in your hometown, this is the PERFECT kit to scrap those pictures!! Ellay used the Relay purple and also the red and blue used by the Amercian Cancer Society. There are awareness ribbons, too!
So make sure you guys visit Ellay's blog to donate to this great cause! Just click her name to the right of my blog!
