The American Cancer Society Relay for Life is seeking volunteers in Cannon County - walkers, cancer survivors, caregivers, community leaders, anyone wanting to make a difference - to organize and recruit fundraising teams and/or lend a hand to ensure the success of the 2010 event scheduled for May 21st beginning at 6 p.m. in Woodbury’s Dillon Park.
Relay for Life events are held with individuals and teams camping out at an athletic track, park or other gathering area, with the goal of keeping at least one team member on the track or pathway at all times throughout the evening.
Teams do most of their fundraising prior to the event, but some teams also hold creative fundraisers at their camp sites during Relay.
Cannon County’s Relay For Life will include live entertainment through out the evening of the event, numerous food booths, and a children’s activity tent.
"Relay For Life is all about our community uniting with the American Cancer Society and supporting its efforts to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays," said Lois Larimer, Event Chair.
"Volunteers and participants who are willing to give their time and energy to this exciting event are making a commitment to let Cannon County know that cancer can be defeated."
If you would like to join the Relay for Life in Cannon County as a volunteer or team participant, call Lois Larimer at 563-2538, Korie Aycock at 563-2311 or visit www.RelayForLife.org/Cannon.
