a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember
loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease.

fundraising opportunities for those wishing to participate; all proceeds will
go toward the American Cancer Society. Those interested in taking part can form
a team or join an existing Relay for Life fundraising team. By forming
fundraising teams, participants can receive donations from businesses, sell
luminaries and t-shirts, or donate as an individual.
