Local businesses needed to create more birthdays
The American Cancer Society urges local businesses to take up the fight against cancer in their communities by participating in the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life of Wilson County. Cancer touches the lives of everyone, and involvement in this event is a great way to demonstrate that a business cares. Sponsorships can be tailored to a company’s ability to give.
Relay For Life continues its growth across the nation and around the world. Thousands of people will participate this year in 104 Relay For Life events across the South Central Texas region and more than 5,000 events total across the country.
Relay For Life is a fun-filled, overnight event designed to celebrate survivorship (anyone who has ever been diagnosed with cancer), remember loved ones lost, and raise money to support the 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 fund-raiser. Each team member is asked to raise money before the event. Teams solicit donations, have garage sales, host car washes, have bake sales, and more.
If you would like to become involved or find out how to form a team, visit www.relayforlife.org/wilsoncotx or call John Pish at 210-557-9185.
