This year, many Pearl River residents including myself – a Cancer survivor, will be taking part in the American Cancer Society Relay For Life – raising funds to fight this horrible disease. This event will be held on Friday 6/18 starting at 6 PM and finishing Saturday morning 6/19 at 8 AM. This will benefit the American Cancer Society and for the 1st time this event will be in Pearl River. I’m hoping you will support me.
The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is a life-changing event that gives people in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease. At Relay, teams of people camp out at a local high school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event.
Because cancer never sleeps, Relays are overnight events up to 24 hours in length.
In addition to helping people celebrate, remember, and fight back, Relay For Life also helps raise much-needed funds and awareness to help the American Cancer Society save lives from cancer and create more birthdays.
Please support me in my efforts by visiting my personal web page to make a secure, tax-deductible online donation or even better join my Team (DQs) along with Quinton Van Wynen.
Every donation really does make a difference. I know that times are tighter than normal for many of us, but any amount you can give truly can help save lives.
You see, thanks to your support, the American Cancer Society can:
* Help people stay well by helping them take steps to prevent
cancer or detect it early, when it’s most treatable
* Help people get well by being in their corner around the clock
to guide them through every step of their cancer experience
* Find cures by funding groundbreaking research that helps us
understand cancer’s causes, determine how best to prevent
it, and discover new ways to cure it
* Fight back by working with lawmakers to pass laws to defeat
cancer and rally communities worldwide to join the fight
Each of us has our own reasons for caring about the fight against cancer … whatever your reasons, I hope you’ll choose to make a difference by making a donation online to support my efforts. I’m so grateful to have great people like you in my life whowant to see an end to cancer in our lifetime. Together we can savelives.
Thank you, and I will keep you updated on my progress.
