It's a Bear Necessity

Why We Formed a Relay For Life Fundraising Team

Welcome to our team page! Our team was formed by 4 sisters in 2003-04 in memory of our Mom, who died of lung cancer, and invited family and friends to join.  Our first team captain was Erica Hunter, who had been involved in Relay when she lived in VA and WA, then IL and was a committee member as a student at ISU.  After our first Relay in 2004 she announced that we needed to rasie at least $3,000 every year. She was tragically killed in a car accident shortly after. We have raised over $94,000 in our first 16 years and will continue to have a goal of over $3,000 to help the fight.

Please join our team or make a donation. Saving lives from cancer starts one team, one participant, one dollar at a time.

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.
