Relay for Life

I'm walking with the Phi Theta Kappa team, for my grandpa George - he died of colon cancer in 1986. Greetings friends More than 1.3 million new cancer cases are expected to be diagnosed in the United States this year. This is a staggering statistic, but there is hope. Hope is the reason I’ve decided to take action against cancer by supporting the American Cancer Society Relay For Life® event right here in St. Petersburg, Florida. Relay For Life is an overnight event that brings our community together to help support the American Cancer Society and its lifesaving mission to eliminate cancer as a major health problem. The Society works hard every day to prevent cancer and save lives by supporting groundbreaking research, affecting public policies that protect us from cancer, and educating people on how to prevent or detect cancer early. The Society helps people with cancer right here in our own community. And our efforts at Relay For Life can help the American Cancer Society to keep working toward a cancer-free future. I want to invite you to show your support in the ongoing fight against cancer by joining us for this year’s event. Please click on the link below for more information, including details on the inspirational Survivors’ Lap and the moving Luminaria Ceremony. We hope to see you there! If you can’t join us, will you please visit the site and make a donation to support our efforts? Either way, you will make a real difference in the lives of people facing cancer – and in the lives of the people who love them. Thank you!For a CURE, Jennifer G.

Good luck! I would love to do Relay for Life, but it seems my health is never good enough to take part. I do usually donate if I can though. I donated for you on your page. =)

I ran a half marathon in October in memory of my dad. I raised $4,000. I'm sure that you'll have no problem raising the money. I'll donate after payday.

You should be very proud of your efforts. I lost my mum to cancer a little over 5 years ago...it really is a disease that in some way or another has affected everyone. I have added a $25 contribution to kickstart your fundraising efforts...good luck.

Thank you so much. I was trying to figure out who donated. I really appreciate it. I didn't think anyone here would actually care enough to donate. I'm really sorry to hear about your mom, and I will keep her in my thoughts along with my grandfather at the Lumaneria
