The American Cancer Society is seeking volunteers to “Finish the Fight” by joining the organization for Relay For Life of Edwardsville/Glen Carbon on June 5, 2015. All proceeds raised will help fund the ACS’ mission to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. This year, Relay celebrates its 30th anniversary and honors the 14 million Americans whose lives have been saved in part to the generous donors who walk for life.
The 2015 Relay For Life of Edwardsville/Glen Carbon will be held at Edwardsville High School on from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. While teams are encouraged, individual walkers are also invited to register. The goal of Relay is to keep at least one team member on the EHS track at all times throughout the evening to honor and symbolize an individual’s journey through cancer treatment. Registration is free, but participants are asked to commit to raising at least $100 for ACS.
Community members are welcome to learn more about Relay For Life of Edwardsville/Glen Carbon and register their teams at the Team Kick-Off event on Tuesday, January 20, 2015. The event will be held at Edison’s Entertainment Complex, 2477 State 157 in Edwardsville, starting at 6:30 p.m. The Team Kick-Off is a fun-filled event for all teams to come together and learn about fundraising and the mission of ACS. There is no cost to attend.
