Every year, communities throughout Westchester and across the country gather to Celebrate, Remember, and Fight Back, as part of the American Cancer Society’s signature event, Relay For Life. Relays are held in more than 6,000 communities worldwide, and have been growing strong since 1985. In 2013, the Westchester region raised over $ 1,400,000 for research, education programs and patient services through Relay For Life, and with your help, we can do even more in 2014!
Relay For Life is more than a fundraising event: it is a worldwide movement to end cancer. Relay represents the hope that those lost to cancer will never be forgotten, that those who face cancer will be supported, and that one day, cancer will be eliminated. It’s more important than ever that we continue to invest in this fight. Over 14 million Americans with a history of cancer are ALIVE today, and for the first time, cancer mortality rates are decreasing.
Whether you are a cancer survivor yourself, a family member or friend of a survivor, or someone who simply wants to show support for this important cause, you can be a part of this life-affirming event.
