American Cancer Society is calling on all community members to participate in the annual Relay For Life of Gallia County on Friday, June 2 at Gallipolis City Park. The Relay For Life movement is the world’s largest fundraising event to save lives from cancer. Uniting communities across the globe, the event celebrates people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and take action for lifesaving change.
During Relay For Life events, members of each team take turns walking or running around the track or path. Teams participate in fundraising in the months leading up to the event. Relay For Life brings the community embracing their collective power to free the world from the pain and suffering of cancer.
“Every step taken demonstrates courage and strength,” said Jenni Lewis, Team Ambassador for the Gallia County Relay For Life. “Together, we are bigger than cancer, and funds raised by local teams help the American Cancer Society in the fight against cancer and the hopes of finding a cure.”
Funds raised help the American Cancer Society provide free information and support for people facing the disease today, and fund cancer research that will help protect future generations.
Teams and individuals can learn more and sign up for the Relay For Life event by visiting RelayForLife.org or call Karrie Davison at 740-446-5901.
