PRLog - Jan. 20, 2014 - NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- At Relay For Life events, communities across the globe come together to honor cancer

survivors, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against a disease that has already

taken too much. The funds you raise truly make a difference in the fight against

cancer”just ask one of the nearly 14 million cancer survivors who will celebrate another

birthday this year!

Relay teams camp out overnight and take turns walking around a track or path a local

high school, park, or fairground. Relay events are overnight, because cancer never sleeps,and each team is asked to have at least one participant on the track at all times.

Why We Fundraise:

Every year, the Relay For Life movement raises more than $400 million. The American

Cancer Society puts these donations to work, investing in groundbreaking research in

every type of cancer and providing free information and services to cancer patients and

their caregivers. Were fighting for every birthday threatened by every cancer, in your

community and everyone else's.

The funds raised go to American Cancer Society programs that help cancer patients, such as Hope Lodge, Road to Recovery, Look Good Feel Better, Reach to Recovery, and free wig provision. Visit www.cancer.org for more information.

What Makes Relay For Life Special?

Each year, more than 4 million people in over 20 countries take part in this global

phenomenon and raise much-needed funds and awareness to save lives from cancer.
