Relay For Life is an overnight fundraising, team event of the American Cancer Society. By participating in our Relay For Life of Pickens County, you honor cancer survivors, pay tribute to the lives lost to the disease, and raise money to help fight cancer, ultimately finding a cure. Relay also spreads awareness of cancer prevention, treatments, and community outreach programs offered by the American Cancer Society.
So What Happens at Relay?
Some very dedicated Pickens County volunteers are committed to fighting cancer year-round, but once a year, they gather at Relay For Life to celebrate survivors and caregivers, remember loved ones lost and to gain inspiration for the fight against cancer. Teams formed from local families and businesses gather with tents and sleeping bags with the goal of keeping one person on the track at all times.
When is Relay?
Relay For Life of Pickens County will be May 14-15, 2011 at Lee Newton Memorial Park starting at 2:00 p.m.
