Ambition, aspiration, hope, and love is what you’ll find at Relay For Life of Dallas on May 20! This volunteer-driven, cancer awareness event honors cancer survivors, remembers loved ones, and helps fight cancer.
Relay For Life is a team fundraising event where team members will take turns walking the path around the Main Street Garden for 24-hours, symbolizing that cancer never sleeps. Those battling cancer don’t stop because they’re tired, and for one night, neither will we!
Join a relay team and help make a difference! Each team will set up a campsite at the event with food, treats, games, and activities in exchange for donations to help further their fundraising efforts. The money raised counts towards each team’s overall fundraising goal!
WHY SHOULD YOU VOLUNTEER?
Cancer affects everyone, whether it invades your body or somebody’s you love. “It’s up to all of us to support the important research that can one day make a much sought-after cure a reality.” – Angie Harmon
The statistics are heartbreaking. 1 in 3 women and 1 in 2 men in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. You or someone you love could be one of those people and that is why everyone should Relay.
By volunteering, donating, and/or joining the Relay For Life of Dallas you are helping the American Cancer Society fund groundbreaking research, crucial patient care programs, and education and prevention information. So Relay and help save lives!
