In October of 2011, a group of friends and family members formed our first Relay For Life team and at our first ever Relay For Life event in May 2012, we stayed at the fairgrounds all night long... WHY?  Because cancer doesn't sleep and we won't either.  

We still stay all night long!  WHY?  Because there still is no cure.  Since 1991 deaths from cancer have decreased by over 27% so we are doing something right.  But we can't do this alone!  This year more than ever, we need your help.  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, most all of our events were cancelled.  Relay For Life events are the largest fundraising events for ACS and with thousands being cancelled in 2020, our efforts have been greatly impacted.  In fact, research may be years behind now... so I am asking, can you help?  Will you join us?  Even if you think you can never come out and stay all night long, can you come out for the survivor lap at 7pm and stay until the Luminaria Lap ends, you can be home before the news!  Please consider joining our team, or supporting us financially?  And we always accept support in the form of prayer!  

I know if you can come out, it will change you... everyone knows someone who has been changed by cancer, well, here's your chance to help.  When someone gets sick, we all wonder, what can we do?  RELAY!  You know you have a person, a reason, a WHY!

Together, we’ll be a part of making a difference in this important cause.  Join the team, make a donation, purchase a luminaria bag to honor a loved one!

Thanks for your support!

Here’s how recent money raised has been put to incredible uses.

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.
