Why I Participate in a Relay Event

I participate because I believe that I can make a difference! A Relay For Life event is not only a way to join my community to fight back against cancer, but also a way to inspire hope by raising money and awareness to help those facing the disease. My first Relay was in 1999, just a month before my Dad died, and I've been an active supporter ever since. I am commited to continue the fight for a cure as long as I possibly can!

Who I'm Participating For
My reason for participating in Relay For Life is personal. I have lost my Mom, Dad, Mother-in-Law and Father-in-Law  to cancer as well as several other family members and friends. I have several friends who are battling cancer now (you know who you are, and I pray for you every day) and I’m participating in the Relay for every single one of them!  I want to mention one dear friend in particular, Angela, and my brother-in-law, Duane, who were both diagnosed with cancer last year. My Relay this year is dedicated especially to them. Almost everyone I know has been touched by the disease in some way. It can truly strike anyone at any time. This is my opportunity to honor those who are just starting their battle, honor the survivors who are in remission and those who continue to fight, and remember those we have lost.

Why I Support the American Cancer Society
I have signed up to walk in my local Relay event to help raise money for research, information and services for people fighting cancer. I hope you will consider making a donation in support of my efforts. Every penny counts! 

Please join me in supporting!

Cancer has touched all of us in some way. And we want to stop this disease in its tracks. We'll spend the next few weeks fundraising for the American Cancer Society. Then, on the day of the event, we'll honor the lives lost to cancer, celebrate survivors, and support the caregivers who so selflessly help others.  

Together, we'll be a part of making a difference in this important cause.
