CLEARFIELD – The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Clearfield and Curwensville is just around the corner. Register you team today by calling the American Cancer Society at 814-765-1315. The “celebration of life” brings our communities together in a unified effort to fight cancer.
Former and current cancer patients, their families, businesses, civic organizations, and the public are invited to take part in this exciting team event. Relay For Life takes place from noon on May 30 to 8:00 a.m. on May 31 at the Curwensville Football Stadium.
A volunteer committee meeting for the American Cancer Society Relay For Life will be held May 4 at 5:30 p.m. at the Curwensville Area High School cafeteria to continue planning the event designed to raise funds and awareness of the fight against cancer throughout Clearfield County.
Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society’s version of an athletic relay, but with a new twist. Relay For Life is a family-oriented event where participants enjoy the camaraderie of a team and also raise funds to support the activities of the American Cancer Society. Participants can camp out at the Relay site, and when they are not taking their turn walking, they take part in fun activities and enjoy local entertainment.
“Relay For Life brings the progress against cancer to the forefront” said Susan Babik, ACS income specialist. “Many participants are our family, friends, and neighbors who have dealt with cancer themselves. Their involvement is proof of the progress that has been not only reducing death rates, but also in the quality of life following cancer treatment.
“The funds raised enable us to continue our investment in the fight against cancer through research, education, advocacy, and patient services,” said Babik. Thanks to the generosity of sponsors the money raised by participants goes directly to the American Cancer Society’s lifesaving programs.”
