Relay for Life
The Outreach Committee is looking for you. We need team members for our Relay for Life team. Relay for Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature event. As a team we hold fundraisers and events that build relationships throughout the year.
On Saturday, July 15, 2017 from noon until midnight we gather together with all the other teams at Whitney Field and have a day and evening full of fun, fundraising and celebration. We celebrate the Survivors. You are a Survivor the moment you are diagnosed. Everyone has been affected by cancer in one way or another. This is a venue that we can all help and contribute to by helping find a cure for this dreaded disease. The money stays here in our county and supports many programs that benefit cancer patients.
For example, the Look Good Feel Better Program teaches cancer patients how to take care of their skin and apply make-up. Road to Recovery provides drivers for patients to take them to and from Dr.’s appointments and treatment appointments. Hope Lodge is located in Cleveland and it provides a place for the patient and their family to stay for free during their hospital stay. The Wig Bank provides wigs free of charge for patients that have lost their hair due to chemotherapy. These are just a few of the things that our money goes toward.
We would love for you to join us and be a part of this memorable event. You can as much or as little as you are comfortable with. All are welcome. If you have any comments, questions or concerns please contact Wende Mersereau 419-663-0077.
