Relay For Life
June 2 @ 2:00 pm - June 3 @ 2:00 pm
Friday and Saturday, June 1 – 2, come to Mona Shores High School for the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life, the world’s largest movement to end cancer. If you’re looking to make the greatest impact to save lives from cancer, this is the most powerful event you will ever participate in. Relay is an inspiring, one-of-a-kind experience that unites people in nearly every community to finish the fight against every kind of cancer. Money and awareness raised from Relay For Life help the American Cancer Society save lives by funding ground breaking research to discover cancer’s causes and cures and help people facing cancer today with free programs and services.
Although it sounds like a running event, Relay For Life is actually a walk, and anyone can participate. People form teams and raise money together leading up to the event. Then, everyone comes together for a night of fun that celebrates cancer survivors, remembers loved ones lost to cancer, and unites us in our commitment to fight back against the disease. Relay is traditionally an overnight event that is symbolic of the fact that cancer never rests, so neither do we. There will be food, activities and entertainment to keep participants going the entire time! For more information, call 616-551-4065 or visit the website below.
