2019 Community Events Calendar
AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY
The journey to end cancer starts with a single step. The American Cancer Society invites you to take that step with us by joining the global Relay For Life movement.
When you walk to end cancer at a relay event, it’s your opportunity to not only honor cancer survivors and remember loved ones lost, but also to raise awareness about what we can do to stay well from cancer and raise money to help fuel the world’s largest walk to end cancer. For more information regarding relay for life visit www.relayforlife.org.
