This year’s Relay For Life event will be held on Saturday, May 16th at McCurdy Park in Corunna. The Relay For Life of Shiawassee County is an opportunity to celebrate people who have been touched by cancer, remember loved ones lost, and take action for lifesaving change. Symbolizing the battle waged around the clock by those facing cancer, the event is 12 hours and empowers the community to take a stand against cancer. Since 1985, Relay For Life events have raised nearly $6.5 billion for the American Cancer Society.
ACS estimates that 1 out of 3 people in the US will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Funds raised at Relay For Life events help the ACS fund and conduct breakthrough research, and gives cancer patients and their families the resources they need, like free rides to chemo, free places to stay near hospitals, and a live 24/7 helpline for answers and support.
Join the Relay For Life movement in any of the following ways:
• Attend the kickoff celebration
• Start or join a fundraising team
• Volunteer to help plan or organize the event
• Make a donation
• Invite a cancer survivor to be celebrated, or if you’re a survivor, join us.
