American Cancer Society Relay for Life

The following was submitted to Springfielder.com and the event has been listed on the Springfielder.com Community Calendar.

 The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Springfield will host a kickoff event on Thursday, February 20, 2014 at 7:00 PM at Jonathan Dayton High School Cafeteria as volunteers and participants launch fundraising efforts for the year.

The kickoff will honor cancer survivors and caregivers, and will feature speakers from the community who have benefited from the funds raised at Relay For Life. Those interested will also be able to register to participate for the overnight event to be held on June 7 and June 8 at Meisel Park in Springfield, New Jersey.

The world’s largest grassroots fundraising movement, Relay For Life mobilizes communities throughout the country to celebrate people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost and provide participants with an opportunity to fight back against cancer. This year, Relay For Life will take place in nearly 6,000 communities in the United States and 20 other countries and will raise funds to support the mission of the American Cancer Society to save lives by helping people stay well, by helping people get well, by finding cures, and fighting back.

About the American Cancer Society

The American Cancer Society is a global grassroots force of more than three million volunteers saving lives and fighting for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. As the largest voluntary health organization, the Society’s efforts have contributed to a 20 percent decline in cancer death rates in the U.S. since 1991, and a 50 percent drop in smoking rates. Thanks in part to our progress nearly 14 million Americans who have had cancer and countless more who have avoided it will celebrate more birthdays this year. As we mark our 100th birthday in 2013, we’re determined to finish the fight against cancer. We’re finding cures as the nation’s largest private, not-for-profit investor in cancer research, ensuring people facing cancer have the help they need and continuing the fight for access to quality health care, lifesaving screenings, clean air, and more. For more information, to get help, or to join the fight, call us anytime, day or night, at 1-800-227-2345 or visit cancer.org.
