Support the Cause:  The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is the world's largest movement to end cancer.  It unites communities across the globe to celebrate people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against a disease that has taken too much.  Relay events bring together 3.5 million people each year in communities across the country to raise awareness and much-needed funds that enable the American Cancer Society to help save lives by helping people stay well and get well, by finding cures, and fighting back against cancer.  Together, with the support of our entire community and from runners like you from all over the area, we are saving lives and creating a world with less cancer and more birthdays.  Your continuing support of The American Cancer Society is a community-wide effort to fight cancer and celebrate survivorship.  We're proud of the contribution our participants make in their local communities, and we want to support those who are fighting back-whether it's as a survivor, a caregiver, or someone who just wants to help eradicate this disease by forming a team, participating as a team member, or by running in our inaugural 5k for Relay!  Thank you for supporting Relay For Life and for running for so many great reason!
