BENEFITING: American Cancer Society, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Aug 17, 2013
My workplace has created a team with Relay For Life and we are hoping to raise at least $1000, if not more! My personal goal was originally $100 but I filled that goal within an hour (woo!). I have a great feeling that in between today (July 22) and August 16, I will be able to raise $500!
PLEASE USE THIS LINK BELOW TO CONTRIBUTE TO MY TEAM! :)
A little bit about the fundraising:
Who I’m Participating For
Millions of people will be diagnosed with cancer this year but my reason for participating in Relay For Life is because I have known close friends and family diagnosed with cancer. Their angel wings are forever flying high with me. We participate in Relay because we have been affected by cancer in some way, and because Relay For Life gives us the power to make a difference and fight back.
This is my opportunity to honor cancer survivors, remember people we have lost, and help raise funds for groundbreaking research, information and services for people fighting cancer.
Why I Support the American Cancer Society
Every day, the American Cancer Society helps people take steps to reduce their risk of cancer or find it early when it is easiest to treat. They provide free information and services when and where people need it throughout their journey to get well. They are investing in groundbreaking research to find, prevent, treat, and cure cancer, and are working with lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and rally communities worldwide to join the fight.
