Relay For Life looking for local sponsors
REGION -- The American Cancer Society urges local companies to take up the fight against cancer in their communities by becoming sponsors of Relay For Life. Cancer touches the lives of everyone, and involvement in Relay For Life is a great way to show that a company cares.
Sponsorships can be tailored to a company’s ability to give.
Relay For Life is growing across the nation. Thousands of people will participate this year in Relay For Life events across Maine, more than 10,000 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) and raise money for your American Cancer Society. 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 fundraiser. Each team member is asked to raise money before the event. Teams solicit donations, have garage sales, hold car washes and more.
If you would like to become a corporate sponsor or find out how to build a team for the American Cancer Society Relay For Life in the River Valley area, contact Diane Mitchell at 364-8358.
