Walkers and runners, cancer survivors, community leaders, team captains and hard workers are all needed to make the American Cancer Society Relay for Life a reality in Craig.
Relay For Life is a fundraising event that allows participants from all walks of life - including patients, medical support staff, corporations, civic organization, churches and community volunteers to unite in the fight against cancer. Relay For Life is a team event in which participants walk or run around a track relay-style for 18 hours. Teams will gather at Moffat County High School on July 20 to show their support in the fight against cancer. Volunteers from Moffat County are needed to assist with the event.
Relay For life is as much an awareness-raiser about the progress against cancer as it is a fundraiser," said Elisa Hayes, committee co-chair. "Individuals who are willing to give their time and energy to this exciting event, as a volunteer or participant, have made a commitment to fight back against this disease and let the community know that you can beat cancer."
Volunteers are needed to assist on the day of the event to set up, tear down and lend their support in any way. To join the first Relay For Life in Craig, call Elisa at 824-6574.
The American Cancer Society is the nationwide, community-based, voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives and diminishing suffering from cancer, though research, education, advocacy and service.
