Relay For Life of White County Presented by Northeast Georgia Medical Center Cancer Services

Skylake Community of Hope

Skylake is truly a great community to live, grow and certainly a “Community of Hope”.  

I have personally been involved in a few Relays as a team captain and event logistics. I admit, Relay for Life events have humbled me. I, as most of you, know someone that has been affected by cancer and the fight to celebrate another birthday. Friends and loved ones that endured weakened immune systems, daily/weekly treatments, so many doctors visits, travel time, exhaustion, the unwillingness to give in and the toll it takes on the family. 

At the last few social events in Skylake, I looked around to see if everyone was having a good time and if the event was going well. Scanning the crowd of attendees, I was overwhelmed at the number of our Skylake community that were fighting cancer or in remission. I looked at our neighbors and was flooded with emotion on their fight, their daily struggle to beat cancer and to continue with life. 

The Skylake team: “Skylake Community of Hope” is part of the White County Relay for Life in May 2023. I have always believed it was better to lead than follow, set the pace for the rest and stay in front of the crowd. So we started early, we are Skylake Strong.

Because of the impact cancer has had on my life, I'm doing something about it. I've joined Relay For Life to remember people we've lost and offer up support to anyone in our community who is affected by cancer. 

The funds we will be raising will help sustain critical research and patient services in this difficult time. Believe me, every dollar really does count, so I'm asking for your help. Please donate today, because together we can accomplish anything!

Together we are Skylake Strong!

Thank You to All The Donors

How Fundraising Impacts Your Community

Cancer hits far too close to home, so the funds you raise will help do the same. Through services and resources like free rides to chemo, free places to stay near hospitals, and a live 24/7 helpline, cancer patients and their families will feel the love. Here’s how recent money raised has been put to incredible uses.

As of January 2022, we have invested $400 M for potentially lifesaving cancer research grants.

We have received over 250,000 calls and chats from patients and caregivers seeking support in 2021

Cancer patients benefited from ACS transportation support through our Road TO Recovery program and transportation grants in 2021, with nearly 229,000 rides provided.

Our Sponsors

Many thanks to our generous sponsors for fueling the American Cancer Society's fight against cancer.

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.
