Relay for Life is an overnight event, symbolizing that cancer never sleeps, while also celebrating cancer survivorship and our achievements over cancer.
The committee for the 2011 event is grateful to all of our participants and sponsors. We could not have put this event together without you and we are appreciative of your generosity and your determination to help us find a cure for cancer.
