Last weekend’s Relay For Life at Huntington High School was a celebration of life. People of all ages, including many who have battled the dreaded disease of cancer joined students, teachers and parents to raise funds for the American Cancer Society’s efforts to help eradicate a scourge that continues to claim far too many lives.
At Relay For Life events, communities across the globe come together to honor cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against a disease that has already taken too much. The funds you raise truly make a difference in the fight against cancer – just ask one of the nearly 14 million cancer survivors who will celebrate another birthday this year!
Relay For Life teams camp out overnight and take turns walking or running around a track or path at a local high school, park, or fairground. The event is 12 hours long, and because cancer never sleeps, each team is asked to have at least one participant on the track at all times.
