Local companies needed to fight cancer: American Cancer Society Relay For Life seeking local sponsors

The American Cancer Society urges local companies to take up the fight against cancer in their communities by becoming sponsors of Relay For Life. Cancer touches the lives of everyone and involvement in Relay For Life is a great way to show that a company cares. Plus sponsorships can be tailored to a company’s ability to give.

Relay For Life is growing across the nation. Thousands of people will participate this year in Relay For Life events across Texas, more than 4,200 total across the country.

Relay For Life is a fun-filled, overnight event designed to celebrate survivorship (anyone who has every been diagnosed with cancer), remember loved ones and raise money to support your American Cancer Society’s mission of eliminating cancer as a major health threat. During the event, teams of people gather at schools, fairgrounds, or parks and take turns walking laps. Each team tries to keep at least one team member on the track at all times.

Relay For Life is also a fundraiser. Each team member is asked to raise money before the event. Team solicit donations, have garage sale, host car washes, and more.

If you would like to become a corporate sponsor or find out how to build a team for the American Cancer Society Relay For Life in Fannin County, contact Andrea Wells at 903-227-5997.
